I don't know the rsync procedure, so what I am proposing might not be 
possible; otherwise you would probably already do it!?

Indeed I am thinking that maybe it is not necessary to change the 
procedure used to build the iso images. Why not simply rename the 
produced iso before putting it online?

Have a nice day.
