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

yep, at this step, I wanna hammer it down with testing, before we add all sorts of nice utilities around managing the drpms we'll get. Ideally, we should have some server hosting core/extras/updates drpms, and test upgrading from that as much as possible. Whether, automatically, or with the aid of brave individuals. All we have to say is "Hey it can eat your kittens" :)

There's a neat little utility included with deltarpm called
combinedeltarpm that will combine two drpms into one (i.e.
abiword-2.0-2.1.drpm + abiword-2.1-2.2.drpm = abiword-2.0-2.2.drpm)
which would provide the n-2 drpm quite easily.

We really just need to get it up and running first, though. ;)
