I have taken over your idea with the timestamp in my script
Instead of the simple sort

ALL_RPMS="`find * -name '*.rpm' -type f | sort`"

it's better to rely on the timestamp of the rsync server:

ALL_RPMS="`find * -name '*.rpm' \
-type f -printf '%TY%Tm%Td %TH%TM%TS %h/%f\n' |
sort -k '1,2n' | awk '{print $NF}'`"

Now the problem with the version change from e.g. 9 to 10 is solved
and I only have to rely on the files timestamp of the rsync server.

The script is updated and can be found under

P.S. I have changed the subject line in order that other people
can faster find the topic.

Thanks, Rasmus for your ideas.
