Thanks for the suggestion and I wish the solution was that obvious, but I
have changed it to really point at my favourite mirror.
Using your example Synaptic reports the following error when I try to update
404 Not Found
This is understandable since that location doesn't exist, but it makes me
think that the directory structure of the R mirrors is not compatible with
Ubuntu and Synaptic, since it automatically seeks /dists/feisty/ rather than
just /feisty/ as it is on the CRAN mirrors.
