If there are "Debian" images, whether they're described as *official*
or not, we should be striving to make them trustable by our
users. Anything less will reflect badly on us and the cloud providers
using / linking to them. They need to be 100% clear about what's in
them and where they've come from.

I hope that's something we can all agree on?
