I would be nice to have xdelta patches the next time to reduce the traffic. (Downloading from gerolde is quite slow; not to mention the years it takes to upload those isos :-)).
You mean an xdelta patch from 2009.02 to 2009.XX ? Something about that doesn't sit right with me, but I guess I could do it
The difference between major releases might be too big, but it should really speed up testing if only a few chagnes are made.
And of course the overhead of up/downloading the img and iso images can be reduced.
I just made a diff between archlinux-2009.02-RC2-core-i686.iso and archlinux-2009.02-RC2-core-i686.img. The resulting patch is only 1,2MB. (And yes, using the iso and that patch produces a img with the same md5sum)
