In theory that's all correct. But anyway there are bugs and/or issues
inside of mcstransd (when taking it here as an example), which are not
really fixed and still exist, even that the bug report is maybe closed
now. Reproducing that is as far as I know still possible as described
there.

Didn't we learn in the beginnung of my started thread, that it takes anyway
~ 24 hours for a push? So why then a daemon which checks more often? Sorry,
but the possible reason of "having some own repository" still makes IMHO
not necessary to check more often than once or at least twice per 24 hours
for available updates...
