I love this script. I used it on Linux with python 3.1 and p7zip as well as on Cygwin with the python 3.1 from and the p7zip that comes with Cygwin.

I just wanted to ask you how hard would it be to add two possibilities:

1) Download all packages in a noarch part of a repository (each one without dependencies) and convert them to zip.

2) Add an option which would be triggering a creation of a kind of manifest inside a zip that would list the dependencies and provides of the given package, naturally, if it is mingw32-<somepackage> only <somepackage> and if it is mingw32(<somedll>) only <somedll>.

Such a script would maybe allow us to be able to run it regularily and provide zip files for download.

I am ~zero in python, so asking you :)

Thanks again
