This raises another point which is and has been the DNS version does not and has not meant there was an update to the daily CVD file - just that the cdiffs exist to update the users' local copy of the CLD to the current version using a reliable and efficient signed process. This only ever mattered to people with private local mirrors but there have always been private local work-arounds to what is largely not a problem so much as an inconvenience. Security and convenience have an inverse relationship.

That being said, this thread is long and I wanted to reply to is.

What if I flushed the daily.cvd cache every time we publish?  Hm...
Pointing everyone at cloudflare is an interesting idea, may be expensive for me 
though (since I pay for cloudflare from my budget).

Interesting discussions points here...
