Debian links

I’ve been trying to setup a local repository here in my test rig.
I’ve got the whole files from Debian sarge DVDs, and now trying to update it.

Here’s a few links that I found useful :

1. Straightforward guide on how to setup a Debian repo (and also other hands-on guides). From Indonesian Debconf II, well done.

2. The most complete list of Debian repositories all over the world. May not be the most accurate though – a few of the Indonesian mirrors are inaccessible.

Also it lists Debian rsync servers all over the world, which is very useful to keep your local repository up to date. I usually execute rsync -avvuzP ftp3.nrc.ca::debian /mnt/repo/ to update mine.

3. Still got a few Woody boxes lying around ? Upgrade them now to Debian sarge.
