this looks to me, as if "extra"-db is not up-to-date with the files

what's wrong?

Re: extra db is not updated

Re: extra db is not updated

It wasn't that, it was that someone else didn't fully update their packages and it was stopping farphel from updating his.

Tagging is something that you do with cvs to mark a certain revision as being the one you want.  We use it in the arch repositories.
