Is it really that complicated? It sounds to me that one wikipage that
links to three directories solves this problem. A commandline tool is
cool, sure, but there are other much more pressing infrastructure issues
we are facing (patch review tool for kernel patches anyone?)

I agree that the wiki doesn't help here.

It sounds like we should have a 

    /Download

page which clearly provides the three links:

    Daily builds
    Milestones
    Releases

which explain images versus hardware packs and take you to the right
directory.
