Re: yum-deltarpm (Was Thread Hijack - Our package management GUI tools need improvement)

What I currently have implemented is something like:
If newRpmSize < 1M ==> drpm is not worth it
if drpmsize > 50% of new rpm size ==> drpm is not worth it

The actual values can be tuned of course, but I guess the idea of a lower bound, coupled with a percentage saving is generally acceptable. Also, preliminary size tests shows big savings for huge packages, so we only need to consider smaller ones carefully.

Err, yes, this is what I meant. =)
