Hi Andreas,

That is completely unrelated. The point is that you're changing a
project that is supposed to be stable without agreeing on a consensus
*before* doing so and then expect the maintainer to clean that stuff
up. This is the part htat is upsetting me.

again, I'm not talking about Factory:ARM.

I explained why it was created that way by me.

That is unrelated, it doesn't have to be disabled. when it is enabled
you can look at the build result as well.

Why did you choose to use two different solutions for two contrib
projects? if the point was to cleaning it up, then make it more
similar than before. now its just awkward imho.

3rd time. I do not talk about Factory:ARM at all.

Which is fine by me. my point is that we don't make contribs more
complicated than they are now or change non-staging projects without
testing things in Staging first. I personally spent already way too
many nights on fixing the random regression because someone thought
some change somewhere would not affect anything else, but it did.

Why is it so complicated to discuss things before they are done?

I think we should just always have a -Contrib- in the image name when
it is a contrib image. this way the occassional mail chatter about
"well, which image exactly did you use from where?" is solved.

I don't think you need to do anything in that area, this can be done
automatically by the build service rather those crude hacks.
