* I currently have my fai installed sources.list pointing to a file:/
location mounted by nfs.

I remember from my diskless terminal experience that nfs did send some
packages and thus use the network even if no information was sent. Isn't

However apt-get does not download files but only unpacks them.

* If we use http every .deb file is downloaded from the server but no
packages are sent if no information was sent.

How do you serve your repositories? What's your policy about it?

Thank you.
