DSA's via rsync
As previously mentioned on this list, where I work, we have a sizeable
chunk of infrastructure that can't connect out to a Debian mirror
One of my colleages has written a script, which works on the
/var/lib/dpkg/status file on a host that may require updating comparing it
files and then generating a list along with the appropriate DSAs, of the
packages that require updating.
This would be made easier if the DSA's were obtainable in a more parseable
format. Currently they're being retrieved from
http://www.debian.org/security/ via a recursive wget. Would it be
possible, and would it be beneficial to anyone else, if they were made
available individually via rsync?
