I donot no much about the internals of yum but is repository metadata
downloaded in whole everytime it gets autoupdated?

Especially the updates and the Fedora repos take a long time to download
and use about 30 MB of download.

If not can it not be supplied as patches to existing xml data. (There are
several xml diff utilities)

(I donot know if this should have been posted in the yum list instead of
yum-devel. If so pls redirect me)
