Thanks for raising this topic Jesse.

For QA, there is an odd procedural disconnect when it comes to providing
bodhi karma feedback for installer-related packages that could be
addressed by *also* providing nightly install images from the anaconda
in 'updates-testing'.

In order to test and provide the feedback, you need images, but images
aren't provided except for regularly scheduled checkpoints.  Much in the
same way the 'updates-testing' repository allows testers to compare new
+old and provide feedback, it would really be helpful to make the same
analogy more accessible for installer code paths.  

However, I understand that the install images aren't generated using
only installer packages.  So I'm not clear whether the nightly
'updates-testing' install images would be created using the *entire*
'updates-testing' repo, or only the installer packages in the
'updates-testing' repo (if that makes sense).

Thanks,
James
