First I thought you meant the Packages files that are downloaded and
parsed, but then I guess you meant the actual packages? :)

How do I detect the difference between "Oops, I forgot a package, let's
go get it" and "Damn, package X isn't working, I'd better download it
again"? I could always *ask*, but I want to minimize the number of
questions asked.

Keep also in mind that packages that are downloaded are verified by
their md5 checksums and I doubt that a re-download will improve the
situation. If you have truly fucked up something, I think a reboot is
better anyway.


PS: Why maintonly?
