I think the consensus was just to leave it for now.

Another possible temporary solution I thought of would be to change
862: errors = _alpm_download_files(files, current->servers, cachedir);
862: errors += _alpm_download_files(files, current->servers, cachedir);
and move the error reporting further down. This might waste the user's
time though, if it keeps downloading outdated packages when some of them
have been removed from the mirror.

Sorry for the confusion, and thanks for applying the other patch.
