I can imagine people not updating their production servers
everyday (for me: I hate updates...), but hopping from one
major tag to the next. And they clearly won't reinstall from
ISO...so there should be a way to get an update from, say,
2018.04 to 2018.10 on the development line. Although I'm
currently following the development line on a weekly basis
to produce a new stable image for our whole cluster, I would
like to have an update where I can tell that I get exactly what's
on the ISO (and therefore, what corresponds to the git tags).

So if there are no separate publishers, at least there should be
a short period of days where the package server stays on the major
tag so that people can synchronize and snapshot.
