Description Ronny Pfannschmidt 2004-12-27 02:20:14 UTC
i need to download most of the distfiles (for a disconnected pc) but with the actual toolchain this is hard cause not all the files are on distfiles mirrors

i need a tool witch creates a list of pkg's helps fetching the actual stable and unstable pkg's without the versions are just there, but wont be merged cause there are allready new versions of the pkg's

take a look at - I'm sure this has been asked for before.

Well, first you have to define "all": you said stable/unstable, so you only mean packages for your own ARCH and only specific versions, or really all packages independent of ARCH including all versions? Also what about fetch restricted packages?
