Information for jigdo-0.6.9:

download manager and ISO image constructor


Jigsaw Download, or short jigdo, is a tool designed to ease the
distribution of very large files over the internet, for example CD or DVD
images. Its aim is to make downloading the images as easy for users as a
click on a direct download link in a browser, while avoiding all the
problems that server administrators have with hosting such large files.

In short, it downloads individual files from various mirrors, then uses
them to produce CD or DVD images.  Mainly used by the Debian project.

	This package depends on PR pkg/19932 to build.
