On my current attempt to clean up the mirrors list, one of the mirror admins
answered quite fast on my mail that their mirror is not current:
$mirror has been bitten by bug 318463 in e2fsprogs which has
prevented successful checking of /home, such that the user which
performs rsync to update the mirror has had trouble logging the results
and running the rsync script at all. I noticed that rsync ran
successfully this morning (I run it once every 24 hours in cron), and
now that e2fsprogs is fixed, this should no longer be a problem in the
That was the best answer I got till now.
And you can see that this mirror admin is really devoted to Debian.
(And, BTW, please don't read this as negative about e2fsprogs -
it just happens sometimes that a bad bug stays somewhere at an unfortunate time ...)
