Smaller Updates in the form of patches

Registered by Sivan Greenberg on 2005-10-20

This blueprint has been superseded. See the newer blueprint "rsync/zsync based synchronization tool for deb packages" for updated plans.

Smaller Updates - Updates in the form of patches, I think suse is doing something like this? (even great when only as a last resort for dialup users). The new Mandrake 2006 has support for delta rpms (contains the binary difference of two packages). Apparently this is how Mandrake does their online updates now.
