Re: yum: parallel downloading

Nice feature, although I think that parallel presto delta rebuilding (multi-core) would give a much bigger gain.
Downloading always tops out where the local rebuild gets to about 30 % of that number.
I don't know how feasible it is though.

Re: yum: parallel downloading

What I'd want is:

1) show the delta rpm download number of bytes before it gets to the Y/N prompt, there's lots of times I'm at a wireless cafe and want to do a yum update but don't want to do a huge hoggy download. I'd like to see if the presto size is huge or small before I commit to the download

2) lots of times Cntrl+C doesn't work right, maybe that last bullet on their list is going to fix that.

Re: yum: parallel downloading

In addition to parallel downloading and multicore delta rebuilds, if possible I'd like to see yum download the non-delta RPMs while it's doing the delta rebuild. I think a little bit of time could be shaved off the overall process by doing this.

Re: yum: parallel downloading

I would like to know presto final size before i hit Y, and I dont think parallel downloading is a big feature.
