One more question about delta' theory. Does Fedora-project host
deltarpms for every possible package versions or only for the version
that precedes the current version of a package? I mean that if one
tries to update N-2 version of some package to its N' version has he
to download an rpm or there's a drpm for all currently supported
Fedora versions?
