It looks like most of the /mirror/ structure is unchanged, indeed ive
not noticed the change and have been using mirror.ac.uk as an apt source
for non-us.debian.org etc,

it looks like the 'human' frontend is what has changed and so has the
search facilities, i suspect also that they just used the discs from the
old mirror.ac.uk as it is a pretty huge amount of data to just start
again with,

take a look here
