Indeed, this change has been taken into account only lately (Feb 2011) in
ftpsync, this is a clear failure (let's say in the process).

We missed the sentence in the d-d-a mail of concern for Release files.
For such change, I guess an explicit notice to mirroradm would have helped (or
in ftpsync a less smart but more robust scheme, exluding /dists and not only
specific files inside /dists).
