I didn't say that :)

But it's probably true. Additionally, if we're putting out testing
images, they shouldn't be on the mirrors unless deemed release

We could probably automate weekly builds and stick them in a dir
(weeklies) on sigurd. As far as I know, that syncing isn't automatic.

If they are not, let me know. Feel free to send me pull-requests
whenever you need, as I don't regularly check all the misc git repos
we have.
