When I try using http://http.debian.net/ with apt-cacher-ng, I receive 307 errors.

Thanks for your report. 307 is the HTTP code to indicate a temporary redirection. That's how the redirector works.

A quick look at apt-cacher-ng's code indicates it does store the destination, but at a later point it only seems to handle 301 and 302 redirections. While I could silently make it a 301 when apt-cacher-ng is used, I would really like to see it handling 307 correctly. Could you please file a bug report against apt-cacher-ng?

I'm considering switching to a 302 redirection, since the difference between 302, 303 and 307 doesn't affect the redirector.
The benefit is that it comes from HTTP 1.0 and as such it should be properly supported by other programs.
