Thanks for your input.
In fact, I was focusing of the server-side of the problem, so I
didn't think that it would prevent me from accessing _others_
repository.

I don't need to access those repository actually, but who knows?
Perhaps sometimes?

I'll leave all the files in place. Now I understand that your
distribution contains _anything_ I need, and _some_other_things_
usefull someday.

Cheers,
