# cp -p /var/lib/apt-spy/mirrors.txt .
# apt-get --purge remove apt-spy
# wget -c http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/a/apt-spy/apt-spy_3.1-13_i386.deb
# dpkg -i apt-spy_3.1-13_i386.deb
# cp -p ./mirrors.txt /var/lib/apt-spy/.
# echo "apt-spy hold" | dpkg --set-selections
And the newest list of mirrors only generated 59 errors, which
is far fewer than the one from 3.1-13 will give you. So again, you'll still probably want to use the -f ls-lR.gz something like this:
# apt-spy -d unstable -f ls-lR.gz -o ./output.sources.txt -w outputFile.txt -n 20
Following up on my previous notes about errors with apt-spy ...
Here is a recent version of mirrors.txt with all of the erroring sites meticulously removed as of today.
And here is a sources.list that apt-spy has generated for me.
If you are like me you feel better when you have a list of mirrors that does not waste time generating a bunch of errors and time outs, even if it's only good for a day or so before the errors start to creep back in.
