True, but that's already broken for everybody, so this would be no
different.  Once the metadata updates, either the other files are there or
just about everything doesn't work.

It would be a really good idea to fix this, by splitting up the rsync into
two lines, so that the metadata is done last.  Still, even without that,
once the metadata changes one can assume that a repo update is happening.
Repomd.xml is a nice small file that is always updated.
