[Rdo-list] speeding up downloads - rdo manager


I am attempting to test out the latest version of rdo manager and i noticed a few things about download speeds.
- the rdo and dependent repositories do not use deltarpms - deltarpms are _very_ useful to those with slow internet connections
- the download of the qcow image from cloud.centos.org is the uncompressed version. even though there is an xz image available
-instack-virt-setup doesnt resume downloads. so if a centos image doesnt complete its download, the next time you run instack-virt-setup it will download the image from scratch again.

I havent completed the instack-virt-setup yet (been trying now for about 12 hours - and i do have a good internet connection/ RTP) but i do have one last observation.

i went to http://cloud.centos.org/centos/7/images/?C=M;O=A and discovered the script was downloading CentOS-7-x86_64-GenericCloud.qcow2 but there is a newer version after that. maybe some links could be used to point to the uncompressed version of the latest copy as well as the compressed version?

thank you very much for listening to my 2 cents
