As reported in bug 5805 comment #5 and in bug 5954, in olpc-update, irsync_pristine fails always/a lot, on the file "localtime":
Trying irsync_pristine update from /tmp/tmpdKozIo - Cleaning tree. - Fetching contents. - Performing incremental rsync. ... [many minutes go by] Verifying update Contents manifest failure at line 383 Last file examined: localtime
I've seen this on three out of 4 olpc-updates, latest is joyride-2301 to 8.2-757. I have /etc/localtime and /etc/avahi/etc/localtime that are dated 2007-11-02.
If the step is always going to fail, why bother doing it? Seems like this might be worth investigating.
