Summary: RFE: Option to force non-cached downloads of catalog
We are sitting behind a proxy which sometimes doesn't hand out the current
testing catalog (maybe it's just me triggering -U too often when i can't
wait for the testing catalog to be rebuild). Anyway, when i run into this
issue, I usually call wget --no-cache once to download the current catalog
and then continue using pkgutil.
Could an option be added to pkgutil to have _catalog_ downloads run with
--no-cache? As a comparison, Patch Check Advanced (pca) seems to have seen
a similar "stale proxy files" issue and features a --nocache command line
argument / configuration file option
(http://www.par.univie.ac.at/solaris/pca/usage.html) to force fresh
downloads of the patchdiag.xref file.
