I'd strongly suggest to move update 7068 from the 3.9 stream to  
3.10alpha. This will hurt all people who just try what the update  
button might do in the 3.9 release. They should not be taken to  
3.10alpha without asking!

What I wrote before, and what was done in former releases, was to  
have a changeset that *asks* people if they want to move their images  
to the next alpha.

Any actual change to the image should be put into the 3.10alpha stream.
