Re: Fresh Fedora 11 fetches 362MB+ of updates, where's deltaRPM?

Better compression is not a replacement for DeltaRPMs, the savings can be
combined!

I also hope we'll see LZMA payloads soon. Gzip is really bad. Other
distributions have at least been using bzip2, which compresses
significantly better, but Fedora refused it for CPU consumption reasons.
LZMA is faster than bzip2, at least for decompression, and usually
compresses better. (It compresses a lot better than gzip in any case.)
