As I understand it you can also exclude the setup.hint and md5.sum
files if you're just populating a local package directory. They're
very small but every little helps and it reduces the clutter and can
save a few sectors on the local disc.

Or am I missing something? ("Again" do I hear from the chorus? Kindly
