I now have rsync access to
I wrote a script to rsync the directories I want (12.1 i586 i686 noarc
and x86_64).

After the rsync I ran my script.

Comparing Checksums for all RPM's against repodata.
Checksum for i686/glibc-2.14.1-14.14.1.i686.rpm does not match repodata.

Comparing Checksums for all DRPM's against repodata.

This tells me that after the cecksums for repodata have been
calculated this file was replaced. I assume that rpm checksums are
calculated for every file each time you update repodata and that
repodata is built by and autoamted script. If so, it is like I said
there are different versions of files floating around your servers and
they find there way in to your master mirror at different times.

I wrote on 28 feb and run it after every mirror update.
This is the first time that I saw glibc. And after my script fetchs
the correct file with aria2c I would run my script again and not get
any errors in the repo. My script still says that glibc has the wrong

Do you want me to add this to the bug report?

Would you like a copy of my script?
