Since Warren blew up my cover, please find more details at the project's hosted page :)
As mentioned presto tries to be a sane implementation of a delta rpm update mechanism
The "GuideLines" part, describes replies to common failures in previous implementations, and why people thought presto was a bad idea
A delta rpm update mechanism also enables fedora to issue faster/smaller updates consisting of mainly translation/documentation updates as has been recently requested.
Progress has been a bit slow, mostly because my boss is keeping me busy, but as Jonathan mentioned, testing is what's mostly needed now! Basically, I'm thinking instead of just calling for testers, we can setup some sort of a regression which would setup a FC6 machine with out-dated packages. Run prelink on that machine (This has been causing us some pain). Then use yum-drpm to update the machine, and record any failures ... if it seems well, go ahead with public testing. What do you guys think?
And since this is the yum ing thread, when I switched from ubuntu to fedora, I thought yum was molasses! Now, I've mostly forgot how fast apt-get was!
