15 I don't understand. Does this mean that those packages cannot be
16 download from the original url but only from your mirror. This
17 solves a problem, but raises other: if the package is not in the mirrors,
18 or the mirror is down, or the package is not yet in CVS ?
19 This means that while I'm writing the package I cannot test it
20 completly (at least not the download) until it is copied to the mirrors.
21 What SRC_URI should I put in the .ebuild ? Only
22 http:/nowhere/${PN}-${PV}.tar.gz ?
