[CALL FOR TESTING] Linaro 11.09 Release Candidate

Sorry for the top post.
Any specific reason why using the build from 0926 as the RC instead of
0927? This is just because the images are created after 00 UTC, so the
images from 0926 are actually the ones built at the beginning of
monday, and not after monday. This is critical for us because we
usually have friday and monday for final integration, and getting the
images created at monday will actually reduce one day of work for us.
One example is that I usually update the base-files package at monday,
but this time the RCs are still using the old base-files package,
requiring then an image respin for the final release.
Then the other question is how are you tracking an image respin during
the call for testing, as you're pointing the image links and not just
the directory containing the images?
