Well, you at least to download rawhide itself anew. But yes, if you
didn't mirror Extras yet, then you now are forces to...

/me mirrors rawhide (and not Extras) in two places and fears the merged
world a bit due to the new space and bandwidth requirements....

/me checks

        -H, --hard-links            preserve hard links

       -H, --hard-links
              This tells rsync to look for hard-linked files in the
              transfer and link together the  corresponding  files
              on  the receiving side.  Without this option, hard-linked
              files in the transfer are treated as though they
              were separate files.

              Note that rsync can only detect hard links if both parts
              of the link are in the list of files being  sent.
