Images are here: https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/compose/twoweek/

We shouldn't need any manual testing, these images are already being
tested by the new Autocloud just as the current ones are but the new
system isn't in Production yet and therefore isn't feeding fedmsg data
into Datagrepper which is what the 2WA release script queries and uses
the resulting metadata to populate fields for the rest of the release
process including the information it then passes over fedmsg to update
the websites.
