so who's going to take this on. I don't currently have administrative
access to that server so can't do anything directly. The amprolla.txt
file on the mirror suggests that updates are being processed, but there
is obviously problems.

Parazyd said to me a few days ago that he needed to patch amprolla to
separate mirrors in order to accomodate the move of jessie to
archive.debian.org (which will also likely pave the way for including
ports as well), and that he would be posting to this list with details
about that proposed change. I haven't seen that post yet.
