[pacman-dev] Download timeouts

The MSYS2 package repositories are hosted on SF.net. Their balancers and/or mirrors are having problems from time to time and the users are then complaining about being unable to update databases or install packages. SF.net support says 10 seconds slow-timeout is too low. I didn't find many resources on this topic, but libalpm's source code suggests the timeout is non-configurable except when using an external downloader.

Is it possible to increase the default timeout values, or to add an option to configure them in pacman.conf?
