Indeed I see it now on my workstation. But I could swear I looked in the "source" module before asking you. I just checked my other browser on my laptop and when I use the "back" button to see what I previously looked at it indeed has a page without it. My web caches are gaslighting me !

That works for me, thanks. FYI I will be using patterns like this: https://api.ftp-master.debian.org/file_in_archive/%25/dgit%5c_1.4.tar.gz It is necessary to prefix each _ with %5c (the ASCII code for \) because otherwise _ is interpreted as a single-character wildcard (ie what conventional shell globbing spells `?'), making the pattern ambiguous. (Not sure if there are actually cases right now where this matters, but that situation is certainly not excluded.) Not sure if you can, but perhaps it would be worth mentioning this wrinkle (given Debian's propensity for putting _ in pathnames) and/or link to the FAQ(s)/docs you found. Perhaps you should change the tmux example to %25/tmux%5c_2.3-1.dsc since I think that is the correct pattern to match exactly files whose leafname is tmux_2.3-1.dsc ? Anyway, thanks for your very quick responses! Regards, Ian. -- Ian Jackson <ijack...@chiark.greenend.org.uk> These opinions are my own.
