Hello Johnny und Co,

For pushing out new releases, it would help download times a little
bit if you would run "/usr/sbin/hardlink -v centos/5.8 centos/5.9"
to hardlink all unchanged rpm packages before pushing this out to
the CentOS mirror system.

(I know 5.8 will be deleted soon, so it doesn't help overall disk
size. Space savings for 5.9 would be 9GB, same of course for new
downloads of it for all mirrors.)

Thanks a lot for CentOS-5.9,

Florian La Roche
