It's kind of a tricky question. I think I would not go for “releases”
because a Dragora release encompasses more than the collection of ISO
images in that directory, doesn't it? So, if I had to choose one of the
above, it would be “iso-images”. I would just shorten it to “iso”, but
that's not really worth arguing about, I'd say.

Now, I've had another look at the structure of the repository at
http://rsync.dragora.org/ and it seems a bit odd to me that the
directory containing the ISO images for 3.0 is not inside the “v3”
directory. I think it would, maybe, make more sense to have it in there
instead of putting it next to “v3” in the top-level directory. Well, it
depends on how you're using “v3”. If it's going to be used throughout
the 3.x release series (which I guess it is), keeping the ISO image
directory out of it makes sense.
