Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1276093
DNF is getting very slow on rawhide

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!
