Thanks for noticing it. It is really weird and should be considered a
serious issue.

Let me give you a little insider info about our repositories:
You have probably read in earlier mails that we have a caching network
helping us with the load distribution. So all around the globe, no
matter where you are you will get the content as fast as possible. The
caching network is fetching the content from our origin server, which
is repository.maemo.org in this case. Just look at theses files:
>From the origin server:

>From the cache:

They are supposed to be the same. At the time of writing they are
different. The 1st one from the origin server is the correct. The
cache has a two days old version.

The quick solution, which I will do right after this mail is to force
the caches to refresh their contents. The ideal solution would be if
the caches understood if a file is newer and refreshed it
automatically. Well, they supposed to do this, but perhaps the
squirrels have a day off in those server rooms ;)

That's the beauty of such sophisticated technology that gives me some
sleepless nights every now and then ;) But I know some phone numbers
and mail addresses, so let's hunt this bug down!

Thanks again for the reports and for your patience.
