Project Description

RPMs with reflinkable content that leverage CoW filesystem features could help to minimize disk writes and space usage, reduce cpu cycles and download bandwidth for updates.

Goal for this Hackweek

Develop some simple, standalone prototype that can install reflinkable payload. Provide a tool that converts a subset of a repo to reflinkable content.
