The urls pointing to are highly suspect.  I thought the
upgrader always used the "canonical" (pun completely intentional) urls -
ie, pointing to "" where xx is a country code.

When I naively believed that a ca address would be more efficient for my
needs, I'm pretty sure was pointing to a usherbrooke
host, but it was highly unreliable (and others here noted that too).  But
it appears that mirror has moved, and now points to - so naturally if you're finding anything, it
isn't official.

Not that I can see - everything points to "gulus", but hardy, not gutsy
(except for the commented "# deb cdrom:[Ubuntu 7.10 _Gutsy Gibbon_ " for
the cd)
