Yeah, you are right there, so if we get working dailies every day do we 
still need alphas at all?

Ideally we would have the automatic testing flagging isos "green" when 
they have no issue (with the goal to always have them good) and we would 
recommend people to just pick the current green iso.

Can we just drop the image rolling part of milestones? We still probably 
want fixed checkpoints in the cycle to review the features, etc but they 
don't especially need to be linked with a special image...
