Thank you both, I am trying to keep from groaning, thinking about having to redo the downloads, but have written some scripts that will help me automate the process.
For those whose Pis will have Internet access, and high speed connections, it is not such a big deal, but I have neither.
But I do see about 20 files I have gotten from the old repository, that end with "any.pkg.tar.xz", those should be okay, shouldn't they? Isn't that what "any" means?
