FYI, all packages should get rebuilt tonight in the pretest. So be
prepared for a big update, those of you who are doing that. Could take
this opportunity to reinstall, if you like.
In case you're curious: this is because we slightly changed the revision
computation algorithm so that in the future when we change
infrastructure files (*.tlpsrc, for those who want to know) the binary
.ARCH packages will *not* be redownloaded.
In other words, tiny tweak to doc/metadata shouldn't cause re-download
of unchanged big binaries. That's the hope anyway ...
If by some chance the rebuild fails tonight, it'll happen soon, in any case.
