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.
