    Delta Debian ....A possibility ?

    I recently was using Fedora 16. One great thing about Fedora is the delta rpm package management. I was

    wondering if something similar can be implemented on Debian/Ubuntu.

    Are people working to bring the feature to debian ?

    debian has delta upgrade since ages and it works great, its just ubuntu thats really slow on adoption.
    there were some efforts last cycle but they died away.
    The lack of pdiff index updates which debian has since years would also make it a lot less useful.

    For those of us, like me, who have no idea of what this thread is about and who thought, as I did, that it was about Debian using the Redhat rpm file format for its packages, there is this link:

    http://debdelta.debian.net/

    It seems, to me, that this is another example of a lot of effort being put into Linux by just one person. Do we appreciate all this work?

    If this were fully developed and implemented then it would be very useful for those with dial-up modems.

    I have just found this:

    http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/...ebdelta.1.html

    Regards.
