<h2>Debian Package Lists</h2>
<p>I am offering .zsync's for the main Debian Packages files (downloading these rather bulky files is a daily nuisance for Debian users) &#8212; these are updated every 30 minutes. Feel free to use them:</p>
<p style="font-family: monospace;">
$ zsync -i /var/lib/apt/lists/<i>server</i>.debian.org_debian_dists_lenny_main_binary-i386_Packages http://zsync.moria.org.uk/s/lenny/Packages.zsync <br />
$ su root <br />
$ mv Packages /var/lib/apt/lists/<i>server</i>.debian.org_debian_dists_lenny_main_binary-i386_Packages
</p>
<p>Or for etch:</p>
<p style="font-family: monospace;">
$ zsync -i /var/lib/apt/lists/<i>server</i>.debian.org_debian_dists_etch_main_binary-i386_Packages http://zsync.moria.org.uk/s/etch/Packages.zsync <br />
$ su root <br />
$ mv Packages /var/lib/apt/lists/<i>server</i>.debian.org_debian_dists_etch_main_binary-i386_Packages
</p>
<p>Or for unstable:</p>
<p style="font-family: monospace;">
$ zsync -i /var/lib/apt/lists/<i>server</i>.debian.org_debian_dists_unstable_main_binary-i386_Packages http://zsync.moria.org.uk/s/unstable/Packages.zsync <br />
$ su root <br />
$ mv Packages /var/lib/apt/lists/<i>server</i>.debian.org_debian_dists_unstable_main_binary-i386_Packages
</p>
<p>Typicaly zsync only has to download the ~70kB control, file, and ~100kB to update the local Packages file. It's a big saving on downloading the whole file.</p>
