Hi Anthony!

A. Welcome to alpha land.
B. If you want to reinstate the Full image, load the Full 3.6 package
from SM, and then carry on as usual.
C. You're right. Unless dependencies work before 3.6 is released, we may
have to release only the Full image in this version too.

Nevertheless, removing the packages allows them to be maintained outside
the update stream, which is faster.
