I have created a repo for those you who may want to help test the xdelta
code in pacman 3.1. There is just one package in the repo: deltatest. I
will try to update the package at least once a day.

Steps for delta goodness:

1. Install pacman from git
2. Install xdelta: pacman -S xdelta
3. Add UseDelta to your pacman.conf
4. Add the deltatest server to pacman.conf:

Server = http://home.insightbb.com/~nathanj/dt

5. Install the package: pacman -Sy deltatest
6. Update the package whenever you want
7. Report many, many bugs
