Sounds good enough, this is also easier to manage.

I'm all for automatic builds, and the improvement where multiple people
know how the ISO's are build & released. How would we however sign these
builds? And is the bootstrap image also generated in the same manner?

I or others can grant write access to the repository, see the owners on
the Github organization. I would however first want to ask pierres about
it since he irregurarly is on IRC.

Are these docker builds going to be automated as well btw? Oh and
testing images :-)

This would be nice, how do we share the credentials to the docker login
though? Or can we make multiple people owners?
