Is it intended that pre-release hwpacks will be long-lived? I expected the
same rules to apply as to pre-release images: ephemeral objects used during
development that would be replaced at release time by images built from the
final archive, leaving no lingering obligation to provide easy access to
source for images we're no longer distributing. Are the hwpacks not going
to follow this same release cycle?
