We could probably improve our workflow a bit; atm I am not sure what is
best though. The problem is that atm the repo on projects.archlinux.org
is only used to build the releng images (which are kind of broken atm)
and the release isos are build from a different repo. Maybe we could use
different branches or split out the parts that are specific to our iso.
