Hi A.J.,

Right, this is supported functionality.

> With 0.9.10c, it reads the package mirror field from the repository, and 
> generates package_data with that as the mirror.
> With 0.9.10d it ignores the package mirror field in the repository, and puts

Great, this was a regression after the changed in the package data caching code that came in
10d.  I'll put out 0.9.10e this week.

Thanks for letting me know,
