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?
I believe that they will, but I can't say for sure, Alexander is the one with the ideas.
It appears that there will be things built from PPAs too, and I'm not sure the images to do this too? We might want to have a policy on the PPAs that we include in hwpacks in order to be able to do this.
