To get your fix (or workaround) included in Ubuntu, try transforming it into debdiff (http://wiki.ubuntu.com/PackagingGuide/Recipes/Debdiff) and submitting it for review (http://wiki.ubuntu.com/SponsorshipProcess).

Setting status to 'incomplete' for now. Please set back to 'new' once you attached the debdiff and subscribed the sponsors team.

I've installed apt-mirror from hardy repos:
$apt-cache policy apt-mirror

I'm using it to mirror the Nexenta APT repositories [1], but I can't see any Packages.bz2 in my dist folder [2].

Any thoughts?
Thank in advance.
