You can inform me about such issues we will look into it. Dell Repository Manger (DRM 3.0) allows you to check for the latest catalogs and allows you to create repositories and other artifacts. Please check it out, we have added support for Linux also now.

Speaking of catalog updates:  

I noticed a problem with the previous catalog; perhaps it was a mirror/CDN issue.  I have a script that checks
(http://downloads.dell.com/catalog/catalog.cab) to see if the catalog has changed (based on the MD5sum), and if so, notifies me.  The script kept telling me that the catalog had changed, but when I investigated I found that it was alternating between two catalogs.  They both had the same Catalog.xml inside the CAB, but one CAB was Authenticode-signed, and the other was either NOT signed, or had an partial/bad signature.

I didn't know to whom to report this issue...

Catalog gets updated on 2nd and 4th Friday of every month. DSU repository gets updated once a month on 3rd Friday. We have been refreshing the content in the DSU repository more often the last 6-8 weeks due to the meltdown issues and as and when we get a new update. You will find some discrepancy as the catalog churns twice a month and DSU churns once.
We are planning to see how can we sync up the DSU and the catalog releases, this will take time, be rest assured we are doing our best to keep these up to date.

Thanks,
Kalyan.

One wonders about the lack of joined-uppedness at Dell in this area.
Someone would gain serious kudos (and probably a pay rise) for creating a one-click "update web site and DSU (and whatever else)" publication system.
This "well it's there, but it's not here, and there's an older version there, and it's there for Windows, but not for Linux" situation really doesn't look terribly professional.  Or helpful for those of us with a varied server estate.  If there are multiple teams/groups responsible for getting things to us, maybe there needs to be a steering committee or something which coordinates them all.
