After rpm --resign rpm differ between cooker and stable (the signature
changed). So hardlink between cooker and stable is impossible.

Howerver I have a script to redo hardlink, it allow me to win around 10GB

By "old" I mean a different tree mirrors can choose to mirror or not.
Not moving the distro from a directory to another.

In other words this mean archiving the distro and make it removed from
most of our mirror.
