Ok, so I've now setup Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME, Ubuntu Kylin and
the cloud images as participating for alpha-1 on the tracker. I've
turned off all the relevant cron jobs and I'll setup the archive block
later today.

Please let me know if I forgot anyone. To get your first alpha-1 build
to show on the tracker, just go trigger a rebuild in the daily
milestone, the resulting images will automatically get picked up and
published in the alpha-1 milestone.

If you've got any problem with triggering things from the tracker,
please let me know on IRC and I'll look into it.
