my mirror is syncing from mirror A. Mirror A itself is syncing from
archlinux.org. maybe my mirror syncs an inconsistent (core.db updated,
but there are some packages missing -> bad) state. i don't know that.
this site could say '25 minutes ago all was ok' but what about now?

i only want to compare the {core, extra, ...}.db with the package files.
if all is okay i can move this version to production, else i wait and
sync again to the offline location.
