Re: Fedora 12 staged for mirrors, rawhide moving on soon

I just rsync'd it from my mirror of choice (kernel.org) and was very glad
to get it releases/12/Everything quickly populated with hard links to the
development/ files I already had locally.  Now whenever I next rsync after
the development/ tree cuts over, I won't wind up downloading copies of all
the *.fc12.*.rpm in one place and deleting them in the other.  In past
releases I've had to either let that happen (and hope my ISP doesn't call
me an "abuser" for downloading so much so fast), or do some careful manual
cp -rl magic to stage local copies for rsync to find.  This is a drastic
improvement for me--and for my use of my chosen mirror's bandwidth.


Thanks,
Roland
