Download only layout updates #3060

Repro steps:

  1. Run bundle.exe /layout <download_path> to download initial layout
  2. Run updated bundle.exe /layout <download_path>

In step 2 the whole layout is downloaded

In step 2 only the updated MSIs/CABs are downloaded

This is a perf improvement request to save bandwidth/time for folks who are downloading large layouts to the same download folder. Thanks.

This is an optimization we should consider in a future release of Burn.

I fixed this in our internal/original fork and will port the change after a minor log message tweak when I trace the source down (says something like: Acquiring copy from: , to: .

Of course, nothing is actually copied so this message just seems odd (no ill effects, though - the change itself works fine).

Based on the implementation of the pull request, it appears that fixing 3640 will cover the rest of this bug - if an existing file is in the layout with the wrong hash then the layout will fail.

I believe I already fixed that, but will check that I pushed it externally. I grabbed that bug and will resolve appropriately.
