* First if all, this is version 0.0. Thus many things I consider important are still
not implemented. While I'm in 0.0 I'll also change semantics, names and commandline
not implemented. While I'm in 0.0 I may also change semantics, names and commandline
syntax and even structure of the database without any upgrade path.
See the file TODO for things I plan to do.

* Some naming conventions:
basename: the name of a file without any directory information.
filekey: the position relative to the mirrordir. (as found as "Filename:" in Packages.gz)
filekey: the position relative to the mirrordir. i
(as found as "Filename:" in Packages.gz)
full filename: the position relative to /
architecture: The term like "sparc","i386","mips",...
component: Things like "main" "non-free" "contrib" ...
* Differences to how other standard tools handle the situation:
- mirroring:
This makes no real mirror of the distribution, but
only of it contents. Thus the Index-files will
be different. (And thus no longer can be verified
by the offical signatures). This means people using
this mirror have to trust you to not include anything
ugly, as they can only check your signature directly.
(Or in other words: not useful for mirroring things
to be used by strangers).
- filenames:
Currently, the full version is placed in filenames
used to store them in the pool. Escpecially epochs
(leading "<somewhat>:" to the version) will be
included.
- location:
The directory layout under pool/ is only divided
by the component and the sourcename. Ecspecially
woody and updates/woody will share the same space,
thus avoiding multiple instances of the same file.
(Can also cause trouble in the rare cases, when both
have a file of the same name with different md5sum.
Using -f can help here).
