as far as I can tell, the warning issued by reprepro is related to its
internal state, not to potential changes in the archive reprepro is
copying files from. I guess, repropro's database could end up in an
inconsistent state if reprepro is interrupted during an update. But my
machine will shut down before a full distribution is downloaded. So
reprepro's update operation will be interrupted multiple times before
the local archive is complete.
I would like to find out whether it is possible to use reprepro under
these circumstances before I start a big download.
