Package doesn't build because version number has changed. Just a pkgver update is necessary.

Building this today it produced a package with no files/directories in it.

Updating the build section to the following makes it work again (also changed the permissions on the script/config files).

build() {
cd $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver
install -d ${pkgdir}/etc/apt
install -d ${pkgdir}/usr/bin
install -d ${pkgdir}/var/spool/apt-mirror/{var,skel,mirror}
install -m755 $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver/apt-mirror ${pkgdir}/usr/bin/
install -m644 $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver/mirror.list ${pkgdir}/etc/apt/
install -m644 ${startdir}/mirror_jessie.list ${pkgdir}/etc/apt/

Might be worth specifying the config files in a backup statement so future upgrades don't overwrite the config.

backup=('etc/apt/mirror.list' 'etc/apt/mirror_jessie.list')

Got a 404 while building, looks like Debian updated their package.

Is there a particular reason this is i686 only?

0.4.8 is there. BTW, it works great.
