Description of problem:
delta rpm support is there by default in yum since yum-presto plugin is integrated. dnf should support this functionality as well as potentially support delta for the metadata as well if thats possible.
Support for delta metadata is not available in yum either yet. I'll look into the delta rpm downloads.
any update here?
no, not at the moment.
I'll start porting the code from yum, but it'll probably need changes in librepo, too.
Patches are upstream, this will get closed with the next DNF build.

How should I get this delta rpm support. I am daily seeing "dnf update" command giving me few package updates but in the whole transaction log in the gnome-terminal, I see no where word delta or drpms. So, I am unsure whether delta rpm support is working or not. I am using Fedora 20 and dnf-0.4.14-1.fc20.noarch
Parag, this can be enabled with 'deltarpm' per-repo config option: http://akozumpl.github.io/dnf/conf_ref.html
Thank you. I got the deltarpm support working successfully. I only added following line in /etc/dnf/dnf.conf [main] section
I'm assuming this may be related to the differences I see in available updates between running dnf check-update and yum check-update. deltarpms are enabled on my system when using yum, though dnf is not using deltarpms.
As a result, yum check-update reports available updates, while dnf reports no updates available
