I said to have it all in one directory. Not to have it in the file name,
or whatever.
There should be only two ways.
1) FTP + boxed set. That has it all
2) ISO download. Does not have it all.

So that way if it ain't on the ISO, it is on the mirror.

What could be done is use ARCHIVES.gz not only for those things that are
on the ISO, but also include things that are not there.

e.g. it now says:
./CD1/suse/noarch/update-desktop-files-10.1-36.noarch.rpm: -rw-r--r--
1 root root 3321 Dec 1 07:07

./CD3/suse/noarch/susehelp-2006.04.25-3.noarch.rpm: -rw-r--r-- 1
root root 213 Apr 26 02:00

./CD4/suse/i586/slrn- drwxr-xr-x 2 root
root 0 Apr 26 00:02 /etc/slrn


It could add e.g.

./non-oss/... opera.rpm
./FTP/... java.rpm

That way you know where to get stuff.
