The Dev images can be automatically generated but shouldn't be consider
stable, and should NOT be the dev image that a final user download.
To build a dev image, you have to options:

1) Just load all the latest versions of all external packages with a large
gofer script. This way is easiest to just try to build an image and see how
it works. But this doesn't scale, this is not reproducible in the future,
and what is worst, it can be not stable (not always the latest versions are
the required).
This was the previous way to create a Pharo dev.

2) Using Metacello configurations. With this we can make it reproducable and
stable. BUUUUT in order to make it stable, we need to define stable
metacello versions for all the configuration. And this is not done

So...what I want to say is that for a hudson, it doesn't make sense if the
configurations are not updated. Or maybe yes it makes sense doing 1)  but I
don't know....
