I'm not sure what you are asking for. So I try to give a little bit of
info, maybe it helps already:

There is nothing special about relays at all. Icecast config is exactly
as for any other stream. The only things is that a <relay>-tag is added
to start the corresponding internal source client (which replaces an
external source client).

As nothing else is different there are also no different requirements.

Also, not fully sure what you mean by "temporary directory" as Icecast
does not write any temp files at all. (In fact it is completely safe to
operate it on a read-only filesystem.)

With best regards,
