saving update packages
Authored by: robg on May 02, '01 09:44:39AM

Actually, if you compare the file sizes, they aren't moved -- all that's put in receipts is the basic installer package, but none of the contents. Here's a summary of "du" on each package:

du /Library/Receipts/10.0.2Update.pkg ==> total = 556
du ~/Backups/Installers/1002.pkg ==> total = 15872

So the package that's in receipts is basically just the install app plus the list of installed parts...
