Testing F38 KDE spin today, I see this:
Delta RPMs reduced 235.2 MB to 23.8 MB (89.9%)

So, it seems we do still have some cornercases when deltaRPM shows its value.

But, ok, In agree that in most cases it's irrelevant this days.
+1 for dropping deltarpm

... and that ticket hasn't moved, because fixing it isn't trivial.

What we're doing now — as has been the case for several years, already noted
in the previous discussion — has very little end-user value. Also as noted
in that thread (as in the ticket)... that's unfortunate, because it did
bring some real benefits (and could possibly do even more.)

But, I think it's time to move on. We have ostree and various
container-delta approaches. We should focus on those — and give DeltaRPMs a
sad, fond farewell.
