The 130GB is what we posted for F10.  Of that, 48GB were ISOs, 93GB
was the Everything/ tree which was hardlinked from rawhide, so yes,
that would cut down on the transfer quite a bit.

Honestly, I don't recall how the signing aspect went for F10.  If the
process involved signing, then copying the packages into the
Everything tree, then there wouldn't be hardlinks to help.

RCs with the final name haven't been posted for the mirrors ahead of
time, yet.  We could consider it for F12 though.

I think you're right, except that RC ISOs aren't published ahead of
time for mirrors to sync, and signing of the RPMs that land in the
Everything tree if they weren't signed, or were signed with a
different key.  I believe the signing process has changed for F11, so
the packages in rawhide are signed with the F11 release key.  I think
that means at some point, either through a mass rebuild, or through a
resigning, rawhide will then need to be re-signed with the F12 key.
