Excellent work Seth!
I threw together a local repo for FC3test1 by loopback mounting the
isos, and ran a few update tests against FC2.
A complete complete update consumed about 40 seconds of cpu time for
calculating the dependencies, down from maybe 5-10 minutes (haven't
tried myself, but I've seen figures elsewhere).
An update such as xorg-x11, which grabbed 5 other xorg-* packages with
it, took maybe 2-3 seconds. With yum 2.0, such an update would take at
least around 30 seconds.
This is on an 1.4 GHz AMD, 512 RAM.
When wil apt/upda2date read this metadata, and are there any mirrors
that plan to use this metadata on fc2+updates any time soon?
