Apt & rsync
My brain just threw an idea up at me, and I figured this might be the
address to mail. :)
Could apt be made to use rsync ??
For example, if I have a package still in my package cache why couldnt apt
rsync the older .deb up to the newer version ?
I think plenty of people would be happy to trade off a bit of disk space
for much faster package upgrades.
rsync could also be used to update the packages lists.
PS. If this has been thrashed to death somewhere else before, could some
one please point me at some information.
