RPM Delta Compression Virtual Update Repository for significantly reducing the bandwidth required to apply updates.
Version: 0.2.0RPM Delta Compression Virtual Update Repository is an experiment to explore the possibility of significantly reducing the bandwidth required to apply updates to a Fedora installation.
Operating System: Linux
This software includes a server which provides a virtual update repository to clients such as yum, up2date, or other update tools. RPM Delta Compression Virtual Update Repository also includes a utility to create and maintain a RPM delta repository.
The server will attempt to generate the update RPM from a small delta file applied to a locally stored RPM from the original distribution.
What's New in This Release:
· This version utilizes the SuSE deltarpm tool as the underlying delta generator.
· It features both HTTP virtual update of the RPM repository (using Tomcat servlet container) and command line tools for generating update RPMs from a delta repository.
