I am sure this is a good idea because it eliminates the last single point of
failure in the protocol. And that this is relevant is proven by the fact that
this single point of failure made the service unusable for the last few weeks.

It would be a very good idea if you argued why you think this is a bad idea.
Just postulating this does not really convince me.

Actually the contents file as shipped from the drpmsync server is an index
over the repository. So what's actually wrong with shipping it _with_ the
repository. I mean you are also shipping repository meta data although they
could be provided by a proprietary protocol server as well.
