Re: Yum-presto 0.3.9 - FC6 *and* Rawhide

The Rawhide version does have two major bugs: any downloading will show
no progress bars and deltaurls in .repo files are ignored.  Both will be
fixed shortly, and to work around the second, use the deltaurl in the
presto.conf file.

Works for me. yum-3.1.6 and yum-presto-0.3.9-1. Uncommented the devel repo in presto.conf. Ran yum update and the last set of updates from rawhide saves me 65 precent. 18M downloads instead of 50M otherwise.

Before I say yes though there is no indication that presto is working. Only that it is enabled. It would be nice to get some kind of indication that the yum package sizes are the deltarpms instead of the full rpms. Maybe give the full rpm sizes along with the deltas or specify [delta] near the package names.

If you plan on providing the full and delta sizes in parallel, here is a mockup (yeah text mockups!)

Package   Arch version repository  delta(or full) size

Evolution i386 2.10    development  248k (20M full size)
Total download size: 18M (50M full size)

Maybe that's too confusing.
