Thanks alp for clarifying, I supposed it should need spinning up 
separate build server/zone .

Waiting for some more comments or maybe opening new topic that could 
attract more people
in testing updating form /dev to /hipster-2015 as oldest that is most 
near to the last reported successful update, since ATm for such testing 
we need mostly nothing of infrastructure for starters.

Of course, it is not a goal to stay at 2015, but after that possibly on 
201406, but even that update worked out, next updates chasing /hipster 
would be looking more like just regular OI hipster updates.
And of course goal actually is to provide more testing of everything, 
(beside everyday use of OI hipster to find newest things of course).
