The repserver has already some code to find out if a repo is published

We could extend that and tell you already, if a package has been
published or not.

So we could avoid this additional traffic and IMHO also possible area
of bugs.

What do you think about that ?

I don't know. The implemented way is only a head request...
Can we rely on the repservers published state? Maybe there
get files removed on the public server after being published or sth. like
We already have a published state in the buildresult, is this related?

The "published" state of the repository doesn't help at all, as
you don't know which packages are the unpublished ones if the
state is not "published".

Yes, the current information are not enough for this. But I think we could
the current code, which lists all binary results of a package. The check
would need
to validate if the package was prepared for publish (in :repo) and if the
happened already.

Btw, there is still the problem, that it is sort of unknown in which sub
directory the
package will land (i586/ or noarch/ or suse/x86_64/ or amd64/ or all/ or ...)
depending on the repository mode. But the current code seems also only to
guess here.

As just discussed with Michael, we see some more problems. For example
.noarch.rpm files
or packages where the packager is playing with the release number would not
necessary the
same on download.o.o.

Yes, in most cases it should not matter. But when you debug some error (for
example a noarch.rpm
which builds differently on the architectures due to some bug) this could drive
you crazy,
because you may get the wrong package.

It might be possible to do this check via the /published route to guarantee
that the file
is published and really the file on download.o.o is from the build shown in the
