    Sorry, you must have misunderstood me. I don't want to build the images
    all by hand. In fact, that pandora doesn't have a mirror of main is
    unfortunate. Maybe we find a better machine to build stuff on later.
    Joey said we could use hydra-old (some Linuxtag machine) on which we'd
    probably need a partial mirror for Debian-Knoppix anyway. Another point
    is that current not all packages from woody are in the pool. Thus we'd
    probably have a few package in the old dists/ structure which I actually
    don't like too much. I don't know though if moving those package to
    pools on our mirror would make sense (could probably be scripted pretty
