So there's no way to force yum to only use deltas - or better, one set
of deltas?   I've been looking for a sane way to get repeatable
updates out of yum forever (i.e. update production to match your last
QA update after testing is complete), and no, I don't consider keeping
a snapshot copy of a repository in every state that I might want to
reproduce to be a sane approach.
