Re: [opensuse] Zypper and restart?

I added your suggestion to the zypper media backend enhancement bug

However in its current codebase zypper does not handle download
restarts. Not sure if and how easy it is
to enable this, since zypper uses already multiple downloads of the same
file from different mirrors and I don't
know if that mixes well with restarts.

Could you point to code? As far as I can tell, libzypp is
using cURL curl_easy_* API which is single threaded.

It could be challenging to resume download though as file is stored
under temporary random name until download is complete, so finding
incomplete file (and verifying that it was from previous aborted
attempt) is not entirely straightforward.
