Now downgrade is able to find local packages even if cachedir is a symlink.
Thank you for the fix.
This fix is really necessary for me since the Arch Rollback Machine has closed on 2013-08-18 and we rely only on local packages =(

xpixelz, implemented in 4.1-1.

This may or may not also fix your issue scorici, let me know.

CacheDir is not taken into account when set manually in pacman.conf please.

If /var/cache/pacman/pkg is a symlink then downgrade won't find local packages unless at line 81 you add a slash at the end of cache directory:
"find /var/cache/pacman/pkg" ==> "find /var/cache/pacman/pkg/"
I have symlinked /var/cache/pacman/pkg to a folder in my /home partition to not fill the small system partition.

Do you truly want customization or would you just prefer i swapped the hardcoded wget with a hardcoded curl?

I'll consider the former, but will probably be doing the latter soon anyway.

Please add an option to use another download-manager or if it's possible tell me how to do it! (i'd be very happy :D)
