1 installer.module installer_verify_update_archive($project, $archive_file, $directory)

Implements hook_verify_update_archive().

First, we ensure that the archive isn't a copy of Backdrop core, which the update manager does not yet support. See http://drupal.org/node/606592

Then, we make sure that at least one module included in the archive file has an .info file which claims that the code is compatible with the current version of Backdrop core.
