Following the procedure we vaguely approved in a meeting a while back
(IIRC), I've designated the 2010-08-03 nightly live images (which aren't
all up yet, but will be soonish) as the 'official' TC2 live builds, so
please use those for TC2 testing purposes.

However, note that they don't use systemd. The 2010-08-04 builds will
use systemd. It looks like we'll need a TC3 to fix the anaconda fail
that's shown up in TC2 anyway, so I expect I'll designate the 2010-08-04
nightlies as the TC3 images and we'll test those. But do feel free to
test the 2010-08-03 nightlies and add any relevant results to the
Install and Desktop matrices. Thanks!
