Ok, granted, I may be biased since I wrote the yum-presto plugin (which 
has now been merged into yum), but please do create deltarpms once 
you've done the initial release.  I've really appreciated the fact that 
they were available for CentOS 6, and would love them to continue to be 
available for CentOS 7.

I did notice that CentOS 6 did carry far more old drpms than Fedora 
does; if extra space is an issue, I'd suggest carrying a maximum of 2 
drpms per package: release -> current and current-1 -> current.
