..IME no (but I use the anonftpsync script), as long as the file names
matches, all files are accepted as good, I see no md5sum kinda check
done. I appreciate the "do not dump that load upstream", so I'm looking
for some kinda find *.md5sum* ->xarg md5sum-c -> rm -vf baaad.debs
oneliner or somesuch to verify my mirror update, pointers?
