Hi Tanguy,

It's under pretty heavy development and there are some major changes
planned.  Part of this will be dropping rabbitMQ (or at least the
requirement for rabbitMQ - we will probably retain AMQP in the form of a
slower python-based MQ that can be supplanted with rabbitMQ).

That said, rabbitMQ should only be required for the barcode scanning
functionality.  For datast transfer, see the Transfer Manager and
Deferred Job Runner, enabled with 'enable_beta_job_managers = True' in
the config.

Yes, you won't be able to link instead of copying using this method.  It
could be extended to do so but for now, it assumes it is copying data
from a remote service.

It's still in beta but it should definitely do what you're trying to do.
