We can't have a succesful test cycle if we are answering questions about the
images instead of the dist itself. The images need to have some criteria,
even for the test cycle, even if it's simply "size is good, no failures in
the build process, they mount and read just fine, etc...". Obviously the
images on the site now would have failed in some of these repsects.
