Great, thanks a lot once again. I'll check with the tomorrow's nightly 
build an report back if I find something unusual.

I'm checking if rsync with the --fuzzy patch would be a solution together 
with rsyncable RPM packages to reduce total bandwidth for people 
mirroring/updating Fedora. There has been a lot of fuss to have patch RPMs 
introduced, but the gain does not compare with the overall complexity imo. 

And the --fuzzy patch could be an adequate solution to this, if I 
understand the concept.

BTW it might be useful to have the CVS manual page also included with the 
online documentation so people can check out new options before they 
decide to try a development release. (I noticed the current one offered is 
a bit dated already).

Kind regards!
