ok let make things more specific:

deltarpm in epel 3.4-8.el5.1 while in fedora 3.5-0.4.20090913git is
there any significant/relevant changes? when do you plan 3.5 release?

i'd be useful to add yum-presto to epel too. at the same time which
version required by yum-presto? in rhel/centos-5 yum-3.2.22 included,
but i read somewhere (and i can't find now where) that at least
yum-3.2.23 required. so what's the correct version?

also a presto-utils would be useful in epel. rebuilding from fedora
presto-utils-0.3.4-3 gives this error:
to deltarpmd.pyc
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/presto-utils/deltarpmd.py", line 98
    class Builder():
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
while running:
# createdeltarpms . drpms
/usr/bin/python: module presto-utils.gendeltarpms not found
gives the above error on centos-5.4

it's be useful to be at least a minimal manual how we can use these
tools and and who we can generate deltarpms.
