<mark_weaver>doesn't it show the download progress? it always has for me. anyway, if you can find the PID of the download process, then you should be able to see where the file is in /proc/<PID>/fd/ and then look at how big it is.
<mark_weaver>the download process will be running guile, of course.
<a_e>But I remember you mentioning lots of packages here.
<gzg>a_e: Yeah, I've been starting a lot -- and probably shouldn't wait so long to dump them. :^P
<a_e>Even if it is just a helper package for something you really want, it would probably be useful to have them in the distribution; and motivating; and getting feedback also helps for the next package.
<gzg>Yeah, I get you -- I'll try to be better about that and upload some patches this weekend, then.
