1) Getting things to fit on the CD (if that's the target size) should
be done by the spin owner, not rel-eng.  If it doesn't fit in the
target size, rel-eng punts back to the owner.  That's in Jeff's
proposal.

2) You said building originally.  Not building and verifying :)

That being said, for "Featured/Hosted Spins" I thought we were doing to
do the Beta period, which should still apply for updated spins.  Much
testing should ensure during that timeframe.
