should be nice if you could link this from a wiki page :-);

from which one?

http://en.openSUSE/org/Pin
Just start editing. ;-)

I think a powerfull and underestimated tool like `pin` deseves its own
page. I use an adapted version all the time.

How is ARCHIVES.gz created? I would like to include it in makeSUSEdvd,
especially with the -a option.

An official openSUSE website around this would also be great, although I
can imagine that the buildserver will have something like it.

Yuu can use the following file:
http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt/SuSE/10.1-i386/base/contlist.bz2

It shows which packages are available. It's intended use is described here:
http://linux01.gwdg.de/apt4rpm/home.html#contents

More data might be available in following format:
bin;ftp.suse.com/suse/update/10.1/rpm/i586/aaa_base-10.1-15.i586.rpm;aaa_base;10.1-15;i586;;MD5_OK;GPG_OK;060404;314427
d
This info should be accessible from this location, but it is not (don't know
why): ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt/share/suse101/cache/
Among other things it gives information, about the size and the date the
package was added to the repository....

The apt repository generation is "outsourced" to ftp4. So the cache directory is only there.

Cheers -e
