Now, in most situations very few packages have been changed. Therefore, between primary.xml versions few <package>...</packages> have changed thus most of the information in primary.xml is redundant against previous versions of primary.xml.


Why all the complication when a general-purpose algorithm, rsync,
already exists to solve this problem?  Using rsync or librsync would
require no changes to the repodata...


Debugging a rsync base solution would be a nightmare because it would be much harder to track exactly what is happening for a given update.
