Re: RFE: prevent broken rawhide network install due to repo change

Any mirrors that sync to rawhide while there are duplicated files should have those files already (from the day before) and would only fetch the new files. Those mirrors could either 1) keep the duplicate files all day until the next sync, or 2) have their own cleaning process such as a cron job. In either case, anyone requesting an installation while the duplicates are there would not be effected.

To clarify 'cleaning process' I envisioned that koji would create a list of the files changed during that build, those that are then going to be removed, and include that in the repo top level directory. A cron job on the mirrors could just read that 'files removed during build' list and remove them after that 'overlap period'.
