           Summary: xdelta for release tarballs
           Product: www.kde.org
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Compiled Sources
        OS/Version: unspecified
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kde-www at kde.org
        ReportedBy: sparrow1 at poczta.onet.pl

Version:            (using KDE 4.2.2)
Installed from:    Compiled From Sources

It would be nice to provide (again) xdelta-style patches for release tarballs
of KDE. This could save a lot of bandwidth for those that are compiling from
source (as LFS,Gentoo users). This is especially significant for upgrading
between minor releases because downloading several hundreds MB of sources just
for security fixes seems like an overkill for me.
