Don't ask translators to build a live image from rawhide.
Based on my own experience, it will go wrong.
I was never able to make a 'Live CD from rawhide' work. Something
always goes wrong when booting.
It seems that development people starts from an early installer and
uses the update system since then.

But if we use the Alpha compose to test, and our corrections and
improvements will be present in Alpha 2 or Beta compose to check once
more, that's ok and may work well.
We will need that packagers pay attention to our commits to their repositories.

If these nightly rawhide live images work, it would be good.
But packagers would have to pay attention to our commits in order to
rebuild their packages with newer translations as soon as possible.

My two cents.

kind regards
