Note that we're not just talking about different releases available
from the same repository, but about two completely different
repositories: the one we're using is under


whereas the one Nikolay pointed to for vstorage package is under


If you look at the list of releases, you'll see that the versions are
similar but always a bit different: I couldn't find a single release
which is available on both sites.

If you look at the list of packages through the provided "repoview"
files, the releases from the second repository contain many more:
additional categories include things like "Readykernel", Virtuozzo
High Availability" and, most interesting to us, "Virtuozzo Storage".

As mentioned in my previous message, some of these packages appear to
be released not under the (L)GPL but under a "Virtuozzo" license that
I haven't been able to find anywhere, and I'm not entirely sure is
actually open source.
