see my post on the forum
Any chance that this "low-engineering" approach to implementing an xdelta
solution could fly for arch, at least in the short term? This solution
1. modified makepkg (see
2. packagers having pkgver-1 in the makepkg build dir to create the delta
3. end-user implementing XferCommand with a custom xdelta aware script
If this works well for some users, a full c-code solution in pacman could be
rolled out further down the track.
Thoughts? I see that archlinux.org and the mirrors have been experiencing
some "bandwidth" issues after the python 2.5 release that perhaps underline
the need for something like this in arch.
