This is probably not quite the right place to ask, but I could find no list closer to the subject at hand. Sorry about that.
I am regularly running into corruption within the openSUSE update repositories, i.e. the collections of files as downloadable from mirrors throughout the world. Every once in a while, the information listed in the metadata files (as in 'repodata/...-primary.xml' or 'repodata/...-deltainfo.xml') mismatches the characteristics of the downloadable RPMs. For some items, the metadata says the SHA1 hash of the RPM should be X, whereas the actual value of the downloadable file turns out to be Y. Everywhere, on all mirrors.
To whom do I report this kind of problem? Aside from finding the root cause of the issue (which so far is occurring only with 11.2, not with 11.1 or 11.3, and most often with delta RPMs), it would be nice to have a way of getting detected occurrences 'flushed' from all mirrors. Something quicker, that is, than just waiting for the packages to get updated once more.
