The current kernel for the images is 


I will add that to the readme in that directory. Within the next week I
hope to change that to the stable kernel in that directory.

I'll add a link image-kernel in the directory that will be the correct
kernel for the current images.

The images are currently built on CET time so I'll try and rearrange
them to build for Taipei.

The kernels used to get rebuilt from scratch everyday but it was taking
too long. So now they only get rebuilt when there are changes. The
images still get a complete rebuild. So it could be that the date on the
kernel will be older than the image date.
