That will probably continue for quite a while till the c++ wave hits
OOo. Too many dependencies. But etch should (theoreticaly) be free

Package fetching is done by reprepro and turning it more verbose gives
some more messages but not a download progress for files.
The package fetching is also going to be done by a cron job normaly.
Unless it gets an error it should not say anything (in the finished
package). I will think about something for the initial install but my
current plan is to have it create an empty archive and start the cron
job once manualy in the background.
So, having an interactive (i.e. with download progress) update script
is not a high priority just now. Later, for people that don't want the
cron job, maybe. But the reprepro maintainer has to provide support
