Description of problem:

The whole idea of downloading  DB files to speed-up deps resolving/upgrading probably missed it's main goal. Since those DB files are getting absurdly big
(It's like over 80MB of downloaded  junk - were just few things in reality has changed)

When I want to install simple small package file like some 200KB lib-dev it's getting ridiculous I've to wait even minutes before it actually start to download requested package.

I guess -  we should introduce  '2G Tuesdays' like  Facebook people have - so someone would design actually something usable - current  logic to download tens of MB of DB data to upgrade single package  doesn't scale...

And downloading these  multi-MB files many times per day to be ready when executing  'dnf install' - is NOT a solution!
