This has been brought up before, and the relevant snippets are being
sent.  However we are still seeing some packages for the first time in
this system, so their entire changelogs are being sent.  And then there
is anaconda, which I think is causing the system heartburn, as its
changelog hasn't been updated in ages and does not contain any EVR
markers.

So, yes, I fully support sending only changelog diffs, but I think that
is the current intent.

Thanks.
