Well I must say I have downloaded the new jigdo files now I can find the iso to download from Dose no ftp server have 3.1r2 dvd 1 and 1 iso.
I am still looking.Some ftp servers have 3.1r2 but have a file called ftp://ftp.is.co.za/debian/dists/Debian3.1r2/Contents-i386.gz
What are we supposed to do with this file?

Why does it have to show up on the mirrors when it is final?

Put a newbie hat on. You read that Debian rX is released but all you can
find to download or buy is Debian rX-1.

Put a dialup user hat on. Do you really want to buy a set of Debian rX
and then download the update.

As for there only being a few packages updated there were 2 cds worth
from r0 to r1

It would do if the announcement was not made until the iso and jigdo
were made. Just as it is possible for every other distro to update
mirrors globaly without public access until the release announcement is
