I hard link them from the potato_test area to the versioned area.

What this means is that if you use the -H option to rsync, and mirror
both the versioned and the potato_test directories, you won't use any
more disk space, and rsync will stick the links in for you.

If you are starting from 2.2_r0 images, you want to make sure that the
potato_test images exist before you start on this, so that you
actually get to take advantage of the rsync speedup.

Note that the file extensions are .raw under the potato_test area.

Once you've got both links on the image, I can change the directory
names on the versioned directories, and rsync will do the same for
you, without redownloading the whole lot again.

I hope that makes sense -- I should probably write that up as a
debian-cd mirroring HOWTO or some such.

Cheers, Phil.
