I believe we still want to test things out a bit before the packages are
made public. So, pushing things out immediately after they've been built
might not be appropriate. When the packages hit CR, they've already
been tested a bit by the QA team.
An addition to my previous idea -- when upstream releases the new
release and we know which packages get updated, we could copy the
previous release's unchanged packages to the new release's os tree
immediately. This would also spread the load a bit.
rsync's -H flag would mean that the well-behaving mirrors would need to
transfer only a tiny bit of data at that point. However, there are also
mirrors that don't use the -H flag. Those mirrors would need to download
a few gigabytes of data each at this stage.
