No, we have at least 3 problems I think:

1. Nobody wants to download uncompressed rpms, if they don't have
presto.

2. gig signature is over the rpm data (and thus. is over compressed
data).

3. createrepo sha256 data is over the entire rpm (and thus. is over
compressed data).

...but to me this is all a _problem_in_xz_, not presto/deltarpms. If
nobody can fix xz before F12 GA then IMNSO we should revert the
compression to something that works ... the minor savings in xz
compression isn't worth as much as delta's.


agreed.
