Hmmm, I think it should not be done on the server, but as part of the
OpenWRT build - also if I compile locally I would like to get a
sysupgrade image to upgrade from AA to BB... Relying on server scripts
would exclude this possibility, and also make more awkward to maintain
your build server scripts (special cases for rare platforms).

It would be possible to create a special image for upgrade from AA,
something like
"openwrt-au1000-au1500-jffs2-128k-sysupgrade-from-12.09.bin", but I
think it's simpler to just add a symlink to the tar.gz in all cases,
like this:

What do you think? If you agree I will post this as a properly formatted
