Please apply what is described in
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=183793 to the repository building
process. After that we can run from a mirror in this mode without the need of
the drpmsync server _at all_! And we don't suffer from mirrors that are
slightly out of sync because the file will be of the same age as the rest of
the repository. Well obviously the latter is not true during the sync of the
mirror but during that time a consistent sync cannot be expected with any sync
technology.

My client at http://pi3.informatik.uni-mannheim.de/~schiele/mydrpmsync/ could
do that already if just the repository provided that single file.
