This has not affected me as much as I first thought it would.  We have a
little script on cutlet that generates new rawhide trees whenever it
notices a new anaconda build.  So for those of us aboard the anaconda
mothership in Westford, it's like nothing's changed.  For some of the
out-of-tree craziness I've done (like this one image stuff), it's also
easy enough for me to run pungi.

I imagine people in other offices or remote have similar setups.  I
suppose the fact that various groups have had to set up the same sort of
thing says something.

I think there's value in creating images from updates-testing.  At the
least, this would give us a heads up on what destabilizing API changes
are coming at us in the near future.
