That's an impossibility :-(. The .listing files exist in archive,
category, branch and version, but there are no respective checksum

That's also a reason why the .listing files are not updated atomicaly
with commit. There is no way how the same rename that installs the
revision would install the .listing file.

Note: It is posible to generate the .listing files on the fly with a CGI
script. I was doing from the begining. The only problem is, that in
apache2 it no longer works with <Files>, only with <Location> (because
apache2 checks the file existence before it checks the handlers) and
<Location> can only be specified in global config. That can however be
workaround by: having tla generate the .listing files, so they exist and
apache reads the directive and actualy servers them by a script, so
archive-fixup is never needed...
