Hi list,

Great to see next snapshot, but it comes with a problem — is it is
huge which may be the burden for users with less performant internet
connection (say I've got 2.2G to download on primary desktop and 1.5G
on secondary desktop/fileserver).

Can delta rpm building and publishing be enabled for Tumbleweed
repositories? That would save not just bandwidth but also time of
fellow Tumbleweed enthusiasts. Or, if there's concerns of any sort,
make it opt-in so project owners could test-drive it before enabling
it globally.

You probably saw that usually the changes are small.

As we changed the system compiler, all packages had to be rebuilt.
delta rpms would not have made it significantly smaller, as a new
major compiler version usually changes a lot of things.

Ciao, Marcus

By their very nature, noarch packages wont be affected by a compiler change.

Often, these are large packages (wallpapers, documentation with screenshots).

Often, the package contents do not change even for newer versions.

Please correct, if I am wrong.

Kind regards,
