1. Ideas


There should be a simple way of updating an ubuntu installation offline, and there should be a way in which computers can share updates.

On the mailing list, there were a number of suggestions. This one concerns sharing updates:

  • There was a reference to apt-zeroconf, putting forward this idea: "The idea is simple. On your home machines you check a box in the gui someplace, and then all your machines share their apt packages with each other. Which means that on release day you upgrade one machine, and then when you upgrade the others you don’t have to redownload everything again. Nice huh? Combine this with deb delta syncing and you’ve got a nice little bandwidth saving solution."

These ones concern offline updating:
