Well, if you referred here to my pending alpm_sync_prepare patch: if you can't
digest something, you can ask me (on this ML or in private), I will gladly
answer to you (if I can ;-). [If you don't ask anything, I cannot figure out
what your problem is.]
Sometimes monster patches are needed:
-if you change a data structure
-back to sync.c: alpm_sync_prepare was so chaotic to me, that I have rewritten
from ~scratch <- this was easier to me than computing the results of my changes
in that sync_prepare monster ;-)
