2009-04-16 - Fedora Test Day - yum-presto



Greetings testers,

This Thursday, Seth Vidal and Luke Macken bring us deltarpm support in
Fedora 11.  This feature is made possible by way of the yum-presto
plugin.  Presto, best stated in the feature page [1], "allows you to
download the difference (called the delta) between the package you have
installed and the one you want to update to. This can reduce the
download size of updates by 60% - 80%."  

We'll be joined by Petr Sklenar and Jan Hutaƙ who will help guide test
efforts for the day.  Testing will start with fresh Fedora 11 Beta
installs and be upgraded to Snapshot#1 using presto.  

If you find yourself disgruntled when notified of a large number of
Fedora updates, please join #fedora-qa this Thursday, April 16, 2009 to
help test yum-presto.  Additional details available at
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Day:Presto_2009-04-16.

Thanks,
James
