It has been brought to my attention that deltup is in need of some
lovin' via a treecleaner bug (bug 246916). Both deltup and
app-portage/getdelta are used in combination to provide smaller tarballs.
If anyone is interested in helping out the Gentoo dial-up users, please
consider picking these up. These will eventually have to leave the tree
soonish for security reasons (bundling vulnerable bzip versions).
I'm not interested in these packages, just spreading the word. They use
to be maintained by genstef.
