[arch-dev-public] problem with db-update

The db-update script drives me crazy tonight.

I have updated and commited the pkg asymptote but for some obscure
reason db-update stubbornly refuses to add it to the repo.

First it worked for x86_64 but failed for i686. I found that this was
due to a bug in makepkg that does not recreate .PKGINFO when repackaging
with option -R (a patch for this was submitted by Allan yesterday I
think). In any case, I have just rebuilt it the old way, ran "extrapkg"
again, but lo an behold, db-update keeps giving me the same damned error

[francois at gerolde ~]$ /arch/db-extra

Any idea?
