Are you saying the openshift installer uses docker.io/gscrivano now?

I understand that we want upstream images for "latest" content in an upstream
repository but we have to be careful that people know they shouldn't use it in
production or otherwise rely on these images long term. I think putting them under
projectatomic/ on docker hub might not be clear enough. Ideas:

- create a projectatomic-devel organization and put them under there
- put them under projectatomic/ but add devel or upstream in the name of each image.

Openshift has a set of images they put out to the hub but they also have a
team of people that do release engineering. One option would be to try to
get them to agree to own the images and pushes to docker hub under the openshift

Having the latest build pushed automatically to a registry is super useful, 
but mostly for the developers, not as much for users.

I really don't want someone reading a blog post where the author uses these images
and the reader then running them forever. Having "devel" in the name of the image 
URI will certainly help with that. Maybe I'm being too difficult.
