Does not matter which compression algorithm we use creating a

waste of cycles/power/time.

As for the GPG signature ... can't the drpm itself be signed?

We'd need to do that signing which would take, umm, forever.

What? You mean at compose time? (Signing on the client side would not
make much sense)

I mean on the server/repo side. The steps we'd need to do for a full release would be:

1. compose tree
2. sign pkgs in tree
3. make deltarpms of pkgs vs older tree
4. sign deltarpms
5. generate repository metadata

that would take a long time.
