Yes, but we rely on many packages downloaded directly from Ubuntu repositories. Until (and if) they also switch to using delta packages, I understand that the download efficiency increase would apply only to security updates issued by Mint. Nevertheless I agree that it would be highly beneficial if possible to implement: even for people with large bandwidth it's a waste of time and resources to download redundant data.
An excellent idea! It will reduce the download size and time by substantial amount.
I have experienced it with fedora's drpm packages.
It would be great if can be implemented in LinuxMint packages.
