We solve this problem by hosting two repos. One for staging and QA and one
for production.
Every release gets to staging (for example directly after building a scm

If QA passed, the stage repo is turned into the prod one.
Using symlinks, it would be possible to switch back if problems occure.
Example: https://incoming.debian.org/

Currently I would be unable to deploy new nodes if I use the official
mirrors as apt is unable to use older versions (which does work on yum/dnf).
Thats why we are implementing "mirror-sync" / rsync with a copy of the repo
and the desired packages until such solution is available.
