I guess "copy the tree on a directory not exported, check this is using
hardlink for package, make sure that others files ( such as hdlist ) are
not hardlink in order to prepare for the release by doing mv".

I spoke about this with Nanar, and the idea is to minimize the data to
transfert by using hardlink on rpms, as they are all already on mirror
( since they are in cauldron ). This save the time needed to letting
people take the release, since rsync will not transfer them again. 

However, this can be used only for rpm files, and not for hdlist, for
others files, etc, since they will be updated on cauldron and we do not
want to have them changed on stable as a side effect.
