the plan is to indeed promote some images now and then to official releases.
but in order to do that reliably, we need to have reasonable quality indications of testing images.
this is where the new webapp comes in Tom is working on.

as soon as we can put that webapp in production, people can start testing and giving feedback. as soon as that shows we have a good set of images, we're good to go.
