I suggest some like this to Ralph too.

But first we need sure the Klaus solution for bigger sources files or the
Jerome proposal in Mantis about this was adopted.

And no forget about Dan's compressed sources, he does a long time ago and
never was used

When the sources schema was choosed,  then all 3.8.1 -> 3.10 alpha travel
could be done.

I volunteer to do if Markus , you or some said what the steps are.
Then , when a complete 3.10 alpha and his history was builded , the image
should put in official ftp.

Agree ?
