It doesn't exist yet, but I'm willing to write it (later this week).

Basically, what I'm thinking of is a script that can be run
immediately after the rsyncs that update the FTP archive and the jigdo
dir with all its contents.

jigdo-mirror would walk through the jigdo dir, look for files like
$jigdoDir/foo/bar/image.jigdo, and check whether any of those files is
newer than the corresponding $imageDir/foo/bar/image.iso. If yes (the
jigdo file was updated), it will (re)generate the image, using only
the files on the local mirror.

It will never try to download any missing files, instead it'll just
abort and wait to be re-run after the next archive update. Hm,
there'll also have to be an extra run over $imageDir to detect and
delete any images whose jigdo files were removed.

Is this what you want?

LOL, hopefully your server won't go up in smoke...
