That much sort of sucks, yeah, but meh. We change it at least once
anyway though, going from rawhide to release, so is one more change
here a huge undertaking? (I ask because have no idea)

$ cd .../pub/fedora/linux/releases/test/
$ mv 12 ../


Of course, most mirrors are auto-updating via rsync, so perhaps that
doesn't translate particularly well... But it would also make it easier
for mirror admins who don't want to mirror anything but the actual
released releases.

I think this is less confusing than having a release/12 well before the
actual release of 12 though. Perhaps test/12/Everything would more
accurately be called test/12/Nightly in this scenario?
