Re: gpk-application (and probably yum) updates

there was about a week without updates for my f11 systems. so i have the opportunity to enjoy some gpk-application (and yum) "feature". that is, just to check if there are any updates, these applications have to download several megs of info from the repos. so i was wondering why can't the availability of updates  be checked by comparing the date of changelogs (like 13 june is bigger than 12 june) . this way, to see if there are any updates, we would have to download just one text file for each repo, containing a date/time stamp. this would be of great benefit for slow connection users.

thank you

ps
 as a side note, while i was typing this email, my gpk-application is still "downloading repository information". considering i have a 2 MB connection and yum-fastestmirror, i can only suspect a(nother?) bug (like failure to import a key or something), so i'll kill it and try yum so that i'll see what's going on ....

ps2
well, it's gpk-update-viewer actually :)

and the error was:

<a mirror> : [Errno -1] repomd.xml does not match metalink for updates
Trying other mirror.
