Depends on the specifics, but generally yes. I'm not quite sure why that
is important though if the image is signed.

Whatever works better.

No idea how many are needed. Why do we need more than 1-3?

That's probably the most important question. If they should be mirrored,
it might be a good idea to put them in the mirror directory tree
alongside the ISOs. Then we'd also have to decide if expanding our
mirror tree by 30-50gb is ok or not. Right now, the whole tree
(excluding sources) is around 80gb.
