I setup a new local mirror for our Dapper servers because the one I
inherited used and ancient Debian version with apt-mirror and had
developed a bunch of problems. I had a couple of questions I hoped
somebody could help me clear up.
Our old mirror used apt-mirror and split between us.archive.ubuntu.com
for most packages and then security.ubuntu.com for security updates.
With apt-mirror not being in Dapper I use deb-mirror on the new one and
just did release=dapper,dapper-security,dapper-updates from
Is there any real difference between security updates from
security.ubuntu.com and the dapper=security section of us.achieve that
should prompt me to do this split again?
Also I used the ignore --ignore-release-gpg in the script and got an
error message about it anyhow. I would like verify the key when
updating. What it the right way to import this?
