These files are essentially binary patches. linkman:pacman[8] can download deltas instead of full package upgrades, and use them with the previous versions of packages (in the package cache) to synthesize the upgraded version of the packages. This likely reduces download sizes for upgrades significantly.

linewrapping with "real" linewrapping.
