> This is a good idea. To test it, I tried to configure a fresh install of Parabola this way. Then ran pacman -Syy to download fresh copies of master package databases. And finally tried to install some blacklisted package. Pacman attempted to install it, but said it conflicts with your-freedom. This behavior is different when package databases have been downloaded from Parabola mirrors: pacman complains the target is not found.

This is a good point -- why does this not happen when syncing through
the redirector? Does that always sync the .db.tar.* files from a
parabola mirror on -Sy?
