Re: IITK Linux mirror

Mirroring Debian will be very helpful to debian users since
apt-get install will be much faster and within our limits. Now
only we can only apt-get some small debs due to banndwidth. No
magazine distributes debian in India till Network Computing came
with this issue of theirs.

It would be great if individual debs are mirrored rather than the
iso images. It would be really helpful to apt-get XFree4<update>
debs along with other fat sized debs.

Kudos to Ajay for taking this initiative.

All the best.
