Infrastructure information
Mirrors on the local network
The full mirror is now setup on srv2, accessible via http and NFS:
mount -t nfs srv2:/mirror /<foo>

On there are:
debian: full mirror, all arches and source
debian-non-US: non-US mirror
debian-security: mirror of security.debian.org
sarge-dvd: jigdo and image files for last week's sarge i386 DVD images
sarge_d-i: netinst and businesscard ISO images of d-i (beta4 and newer dailies)
woody-cd: jigdo and (some) image files of woody r2

LDAP info
Install libnss-ldap and libpam-ldap. Base dn is 'dc=debconf,dc=debian,dc=org' and LDAP host is LDAP version 3 and password method should be 'exop'.

Edit /etc/pam.d/common-auth to look like this:

  auth    sufficient      pam_unix.so nullok_secure
  auth    required        pam_ldap.so use_first_pass

Edit /etc/pam.d/common-password to look like this:

  password   sufficient pam_ldap.so
  password   required   pam_unix.so nullok obscure min=4 max=8 md5

Edit /etc/pam_ldap.conf, make sure this line at the end:

  ssl start_tls

Last, make sure /etc/nsswitch.conf contain these lines instead of the 'compat' lines:

  passwd:         ldap files
  group:          ldap files
  shadow:         ldap files

This should be enough to get LDAP user directory working.

Local upload queue.
On srv1 there is an anonymous ftp server. in /queue/ of the anon login is an upload queue

Upload to there if you can (since that will serialise uploads to ftpmaster and thus be a little less antisocial for everyone else. If you use dput...

fqdn = srv1
incoming = /queue/
login = anonymous

In your .dput.cf will work to provide

dput srv1 <foo>.changes
If you use dupload...
$cfg{'debconf4'} = {
        fqdn => "srv1",
        incoming => "/queue/",
        # files pass on to dinstall on ftp-master which sends emails
        dinstall_runs => 1,
