Thanks, it's working now. One other question. What is the output
file used for? I noticed it is in some binary format. Do I need to
keep this somewhere?
Oops, that isn't strictly required. I'll fix that shortly. You can
of course delete it.
report_mirror can't work from behind a proxy (yet, any volunteers??).
And my internal mirrors are behind authenticating proxies. And, it
uses HTTPS, which further complicates things. So, to test, I actually
have to dump the data that *would* be sent to the server into a file
(it's just a python pickle), copy the data outside the firewalls, and
then upload it to the database. And, it's a handy debug tool to be
able to get the data out cleanly without having to upload and then go
poke through the database to get it back out. :-)
