I just tried using createrepo with the --deltas option. It created a
repodata/prestodelta.xml.gz. But zypper still doesn't download the
delta rpm. It downloads the full rpm.

Again, this would be a lot easier if there was published documentation
on how to use this feature.

The delta rpms should end in the extension .drpm and reside in the arch
eg x86_64.

Then you run createrepo in the root of your folder containing the rpm
sub directories.

See http://sfo-korg-mirror.kernel.org/opensuse/update/13.2/ for an
example or the structure which should be created by createrepo.
