I'm in the process of catching up the amd64 image, so it can be uploaded. I might even be done. Just waiting to see if I remember something else that needs to be done to it. And yes, there will be updates to the image from time to time, just to keep it current. (Well, I might sneak in some changes, too. Already did, in fact. )
A small jessie or jessie/sid version sounds like a good idea. Enough for a basic desktop and whatever is needed for refracta tools to work - sort of a do-it-yourself kit and a quick way to get a debian testing installation.
I would leave repsit in it, but maybe add a warning that says something like, "These are our choices for packages, but we haven't tested them with this version, and we don't even know for sure if the package names are still correct." And by the time jessie goes stable, we will probably have tested them all.
Dean, did you run into problems with repsit? I like it better since we overhauled it. But I only like it in theory - I haven't used it, even when it would have been appropriate. I forget that it's there.
Thanks to everyone who helped with the wheezy release, even if all you offered was an opinion. I think we did a really good job.
