Hi Slávek,

Thank you very much for the info. I've only just started getting 
messages from the list again so I'de already started cloning your mirror 
before I read your comment about the submodules (above). The clone looks 
like it's almost done (1.5G) so I guess I may as well leave it to finish?

Yes, a read only copy is sufficient, though I intend to look at making a 
small change to Amarok wrt random play mode.
