    New apt-proxy supports HTTP/FTP backends too
    Contributed by haggai on Thursday, April 04 @ 17:35:21 BST

    Package Management
    The latest version of apt-proxy has been released and uploaded to 'unstable'. This new version supports the use of HTTP and FTP backends as well as the previously supported RSYNC. It also now features an import utility so you can import packages from yoru current cache

    apt-proxy is a program that sits between Debian machines and the internet, downloading files as required and caching them for further use just as any other proxy cache. At the same time, it automatically builds up a partial mirror of the archives it has been configured to use and maintains that mirror according to a set of configurable parameters. For more information, see
    http://apt-proxy.sourceforge.net.

    Woohoo ! the rsync servers were getting really slow. I'd much rather use ftp.
