To branch the current ftp tree and isos for a milestone, log in to as mirror user and run: 

     distro_hardlink_copy 42.2-Current 42.2 42.2-RC1 

 Remove x bit for others from the directory so only staging mirrors can pull it but it's not visible on download.o.o 

 on release day every once in a while scan for mirrors as mirror user: 

     mb scan -a -d /distribution/leap/42.2 /distribution/leap/42.2-RC1 -j4 

 In the morning add the x bit again to make the content show up and give mirrors time to catch up adding the x bit. 

 At release time: 

 - change the symlink to the new milestone 

   distro_symlink 42.2 42.2-RC1 

 - sync the staging are to the area shown in
