[openFATE 307862] zypper parallel dowloading of packages

Feature changed by: Ján Kupec (jkupec)
Feature #307862, revision 8
Title: zypper parallel dowloading of packages

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: Aris Karagiannidis (arkara)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
Now, i think that this is already done with apt.
What should happen is that zypper should download packages
concurrently and when it does download them all, then it should install
them

Business case (Partner benefit):
openSUSE.org: Faster package management

Discussion:
#1: Lee Matheson (oldcpu) (2009-12-05 13:30:06)
IMHO the default setting for zypper should be (1) download and ONLY
after download of all selected apps/dependencies is complete then (2)
install.

See https://features.opensuse.org/120340

+ This feature and comment #1 does not contradict #120340 (parallel
+ download and install). First, even if we download and install in
+ parallel, we still can download multiple files at once. Second,
+ download-all-install-all can still be the default, while alternating
+ download-few-while-installing-one, can be enabled on request or in zypp
+ (er).config (like it is now with download-one-install-one).
