Thinking a little about updates...

Should we hardlink the rpms instead of moving them,
and postpone the removal from *_testing for a few days (or ~a week)
so all mirrors catch up...

That would save the mirrors from re-downloading the stuff, and make the 
updates available faster...

It does not matter much for a simple update like logrotate, but a kernel 
update or a full kde update would definately benefit from it.

the downside is of course more complex code on staging/primary mirror
