I'm not sure about which came first, but I know OpenSuSE also has some repositories that support deltarpm.

Why isn't this advertised better? I've reinstalled F8 several times in virtual images and real sessions, without delta-rpms I'd be looking at a ~400MB download for initial updates, with delta-rpms I need less than 100MB.

This is surely the greatest addition to fedora/redhat for years.

They are idiots if they don't make this the default in F9.

The problem with presto now is is that it seems to not have any mirror support,
lots of times I'll try to use presto for an update and all the connection
attempts will time out

IcedTea is OpenJDK - It's the Red Hat + Fedora effort to bring a completely free/open replacement for the JDK.

I get this error anytime I try to update using Presto:

Code:
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: updates. Please verify its path and try again
I followed the instructions according to this HowTo. Any idea what is wrong?

you can disable presto but it is advised to keep it or you'll get larger downloads

have you tried doing a
Code:
yum clean dbcache
yum clean metadata
yum clean all

Just a note, you'll need to remove and install "yum-presto" rather than "presto".

It's possible that the Presto repository was down for a bit, you can disable the Presto plugin for one yum run with the --disablepresto switch:
Code:
yum --disablepresto update
