Please apply what is described in to the repository building

I'm not sure that this is a good idea. Just ask the server, it
should be much more responsive.

It would even be OK if it only were a "half-good" idea.

As Robert states,

"Generate the list you would get from (maybe
compressed) during the repository build process (like INDEX.gz). If
this was done I could easily change my client to run as a drpmsync
client _without_ the need of a drpmsync server at all."

I really cannot see why this should not be done.

If you are thinking "not necessary" try to see it as a "very much welcomed addition".

Besides the "responsiveness" aspect there also is the "bandwidth" aspect.
