Hi all,

I have one idea - its about to union ability of YAST System Update and
drpmsync, so System Update can do update using drpmsync mirrors. In
that case, Yast System Update do not need to download the whole
rpm-package of package A ver. 0.1 to update it to 0.2.1. It only need
to download the delta of that rpms and apply it. It will decrease
bandwidth for all, and decrease cost of update for some users. As i
know, realizing that feature require the modification of the client
subsystem and a server-side infrastructure.

Best regards
SunSunich aka Asa-Doo-Leen Saiid
