+1 for I-Builds only, I run I-Builds as my daily copy

Best regards,

Hi everyone,
Producing milestones repository ( this cycle) is additional work which:
* Complicates the release process and adds additional steps
* Is inconsistent - for Simrel M2, Platform doesn't produce it's own milestone build and I-build7
is promoted to Simrel but this build doesn't make it milestones repository. This leads to different
content between usage of Platform milestones repo and simrel one. * No one complained about the above for the last 2+ years while this is true so and M2 I-build is
usually the one that contains a lot of bigger changes and the fact that no one had issues I read as
repository not being used or usage is historical which can easily be switched to
I-build p2 repo ( NOTE: This means no other change for people not involved in producing and publishing builts
but having to switch from milestones p2 repo(if there are people still using it at all) to I-builds repo.
If you still use for some reason and believe there is a reason to keep using it please explain your usecase in details in the bug so it can be investigated how the need can be fullfilled while simplifying the releng process.
