15.4/appliances causes high traffic to mirrors
/distribution/leap/15.4/appliances contains 17GB of files that are updated quite often and get synced to many mirrors.
When I checked today, 31 of 40 rsyncs were for 15.4/appliances. This causes quite some disk-IO and network-IO.
We should find some way to publish these less often, e.g. weekly or monthly. Or exclude them from being synced to all mirrors.

I had seen updates on 2022-11-02, 2022-11-03, 2022-11-04 that are visible as extra spikes in the attached munin graph.
Since then it has been rather silent (only the daily Tumbleweed spike).
If there was a way to bunch these updates together in future, that would be appreciated.
Each spike means, download.o.o will be slower for some hours on these days.
15.4:Images:ToTest was published on 11-03 and 11-04, but not 11-02.
We could potentially cut the size in half (-8GiB) by just not doing CR DVDs for s390x and ppc64le.
I'm surprised that it's only about 17GiB, it should be > 30GiB (4x 4G CR DVD + 6x 1G Live CD + 17x 1G JeOS). Are the other files somehow excluded?
