Or all architectures even.
This should, in my opinion, be disabled by default.
The default-off setting should be self-documented in the config, so
that it could be easily found and toggled on/off.
While I generally disable deltarpm locally, you need to look at teh
whole picture. There are many parts of the world that generally have
caps on downloads. Australia is an example of such a country, using
deltarpms there can save you a ton of bandwidth that goes against your
download cap. now some ISP's run mirrors and if you hit their mirror it
doesnt count against your cap. but thats not always a given. The sane
default is what we have today.
This should please the masochists, or people with very slow
Meanwhile, we can bikeshed on how to optimise the feature.
Eventually somebody will make the changes that cause DRPMs to suck
At that future time we can reevaluate if we rewards are worth the
in the initial use case laid out that started this thread the user
should be using ansible or puppet or something for config management.
and then it is a trivial thing to disable deltarpm.
