Whiteboard

This is a really interesting and potentially important use case. Unfortunately it doesn't quite fit in with the way we do images, and I think it would be too large of a change to fit. I hope, however, we can explore the idea of satisfying this use case on top of the artifact api that is under discussion.

I'm marking this as wishlist for now, but I think we'll want to discuss it mostly under the other blueprint.

When an image is rebuilt, test, stable etc, essential to maintain any meta data tags associated with the same.
