Commit b2bb87e7 authored by Committed by Colin Watson
* New maintainer, on a trial basis. We'll see how it goes. Thanks, Joey, for four years recently filling the gap; and earlier, for giving us the software in the first place. Joerg, Goswin, your work is appreciated (see? it continues to be used). Frans, we still miss you. Closes: #768532 * Somewhat refactored the code that distinguishes between download methods. * Implemented the option --method=file, which -- besides being useful in its own right -- may also make testing and debugging easier. * In the unpacked source, implemented "make -C test", which builds a small, mock Debian archive against which one can test and debug the program. Closes: #787760 * Applied Kees Cook's patch to add a retry cycle for rsync connection failures, implementing the cycle optionally via the new, experimental --retry-rsync-packages option. Closes: #576577 * Per Joey's advice, did not apply patch 619363 regarding the --ignore-missing-release option. Closes: #619363 * Appreciated patch 628779 to work around an out-of-sync parent mirror, but did not apply it. Joey explains why in the bug log. Closes: #628779 * Noted per Goswin's advice that the Debian archive ceased to ship uncompressed Packages files about 2006. Whatever trouble debmirror might once have had with the 2006 transition is ancient history now, so if a bug remains thereto, it probably affects no one and won't be fixed. Closes: #375381 * Did not yet fix bug #652138. However, refactored the code that downloads Contents files, with the intent to make this bug easier later to fix. * In the debmirror script, as a matter of the new maintainer's preference, expanded all leading tabs as spaces.
