X-Mailer: bug 3.2.6

Package: apt
Version: 0.3.13
Severity: wishlist

This is my sources.list:
deb ftp://ftp.cdrom.com/pub/linux/debian unstable main contrib non-free
deb-src ftp://ftp.cdrom.com/pub/linux/debian unstable main contrib non-free
deb http://nonus.debian.org/debian-non-US unstable/non-US main contrib non-free

When there are no updated files to retrieve, apt-get considers downloading
the 'Release' files for ftp.cdrom.com twice: once for the deb line, once for
the deb-src line.

I believe this means it contemplated downloading the Release file and later
realized it already had a copy.  Nothing is actually downloaded so the
problem is only cosmetic, but it would be nice if it knew it had already
retrieved those Release files and didn't mention them at all.

Actually there are supposed to be two release files, one for source and
one for binaries, the 'Ign' means that the source one is missing so it was
not downloaded. It is expected.
