I looked at the mirrorbrain package in that repo and it seems that you
simply added the missing distros as build targets, without any changes
whatsoever in the package. Meanwhile, I have also added the build
targets to the Apache:MirrorBrain project.

I have not yet looked at all the other packages in your repo.

No way to fix this in MB, I'm sorry. Needs to be fixed in Ubuntu.


That mirror runs nginx, which our scanner has a directory listing parser
for, but it's different from the nginx directory listings we've seen so
far. The mirror also offers rsync, which times out, and FTP, which
points to an empty directory. 

I don't think that this should delay the upcoming release, sorry.


That's a pure packaging issue, that shouldn't hold up 2.18.0 release of
MirrorBrain. (Enhancing the Debian build description file is outside the
scope of the MirrorBrain source tree.) Of course it should be fixed.


Just fixed this.

Thanks to all the feedback and all your work! :-)
