Currently the deploy to experimental uses a deploy.sh script under:
resources.ovirt.org:/home/deploy-ovirt-experimental/ dir which is triggered
by the deploy job  (for master in this case, but applies to all versions).
The current code  doesn't work for non versioned RPMs like ovirt-release  and fails on .
repoman knows already how to handle this and sbonazolla used it on another flow.
The relevant params in the conf is:
the param: on_wrong_distro with 'fail' as default value might also be related, and should probably have 'copy_to_all' value.
See  for full doc on repoman.
This is currently blocking from NG & Appliance to use the tested repo since they need the 'ovirt-release' rpm to work and its not deployed to experimental due to this.
Also, once this is working we can probably drop the old publish artifacts jobs and use the experimental repo instead (we'll rename it to snapshot after softlinking the nightlies repos for a test period)
