Because of the way we cross-check our mirrors, I tend to see such
problems before most people.

In future, would you like a heads up (to which address?) or shall I just
assume that the archive will fix itself after a day or two?

I note that the various Packages.gz are rebuilt often.  (Hourly?) 
Perhaps whatever rebuilds the Packages.gz would be a good place to check
and issue a warning email if a package is missing.
