Using the jigdo-lite script contained in this package, you can use
your nearest "regular" Debian mirror to download Debian CD images,
instead of having to use one of the few, slow, overloaded mirrors
that offer the images as direct HTTP or FTP downloads. See
<http://www.debian.org/CD/jigdo-cd/> for details.
Jigsaw Download, or short jigdo, is a scheme developed primarily to
make it easy to distribute huge filesystem images (e.g. CD (ISO9660)
or DVD (UDF) images) over the internet, but it could also be used for
other data which is awkward to handle due to its size, like
audio/video files or large software packages.
jigdo tries to ensure that the large file is downloaded in small
parts which can be stored on different servers. People who want to
download the image do so by telling the jigdo download tool to
process one ".jigdo" file; using it, jigdo downloads the parts and
reassembles the image. jigdo-file is used to prepare the files for
