@lig I know that it's possibly / probably less - but I also think that if your spec can't say for sure, then your spec sucks. :)
@funnylookinhat as far as I understand, it just does some kind of rsync/binary diff/partial update thing. Thus, the result is being determined by the data itself. The alternative approach is Delta RPM way which uses pre-build drpm packages. This way it is possible to predict the outcome but you need to build and store drpms for all possible deltas.
There is always a trade-off hiding somewhere:)
@lig Aha ok - that is pretty neat! I'm going to have to dig into those docs a bit and see what it says.
