to reduce network traffic, I use a local mirror of all the content of download.opensuse.org to install and update my Linux computers. As I cannot setup a public mirror, I used rsync.opensuse.org to mirror all content from rsync.opensuse.org::opensuse-full-really-everything-including-repositories (see https://mirrors.opensuse.org/list/rsyncinfo-rsync.o.o.txt) to my local file space and to keep it up to date.
But now, I’ve noticed that the content on download.opensuse.org and on rsync.opensuse.org is obviously not the same.
For example, when I look at the mozilla repository, the latest version of MozillaFirefox for OpenSUSE Leap 15.1 on rsync.opensuse.org is 68.1.0 (/opensuse/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_Leap_15.1/x86_64/MozillaFirefox-68.1.0-lp151.1.1.x86_64.rpm) and on download.opensuse.org, it’s 70.0 (http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_Leap_15.1/x86_64/MozillaFirefox-70.0-lp151.4.1.x86_64.rpm).
Is there a reason, why download.opensuse.org and rsync.opensuse.org do defer? Or is it a bug/problem in its synchronization process?
