It was probably to unclear. This metadata is generated the same way as
it happens currently, e.g. only for the latest build of a package. I
added this to the wiki.

The hardlinking is targetted at the mirror storage. Afaik currently
packages vanish first from updates-testing and reappear later in
updates, so there is no hardlinking possible and the packages need to be
copied again from the master mirror to the other mirrors. There was a
mail about this recently on this list.
