In the .tar.bz2 and the source rpm is a folder called makerepo that
contains a very ugly createprestorepo.py script.

The syntax is "/path/to/createprestorepo.py <base directory> <relative
directory to create drpms in>".  For the test server it's something like
"~/bin/createprestorepo.py ./ DRPMS/" while in

It will then go and find all rpms, make any applicable deltas (at the
moment, it creates any delta it can with 50%+ savings), and save them in
the destination folder, and create prestomd, etc in repodata.

If the drpms aren't worth saving it deletes them and creates a
".dontdelta" file for the drpm, so the next round it will be ignored.

You might want to wait until I push out 0.3.0 later today, as the
current version of createprestorepo.py won't try to make deltarpms for
packages over 70MB (due to memory constraints on my server).

You will need roughly 3x as much RAM as the largest package you want to
