Yes, that's the expected behavior. The 'candidate' name gives you the
signed image; the 8.2-xyz is still the unsigned version of the same
In the past I tried to retroactively make tags like 8.2-xyz point to
the signed image once a build had obtained the necessary checkoffs to
be signed, but this turned out to be too confusing: when people
reported problems with 8.2-xyz, I wouldn't know whether they'd tried
before or after I'd make the change, or if the image was signed or

This sounds good to me. I don't think you need to wait for Michael to
make this change, could you go ahead and update the wiki?

No, the gg-752-2 is a "clean install" image, with preinstalled
activities. The factory installs this with 'copy-nand' before the
machines leave the assembly line. It *should* be exactly the same as
what you'd get if you 'olpc-update' to candidate-765 and then let the
software updater install updated activities -- except that olpc-update
will also preserve whatever "extra" activities you've already got
installed, the contents of your journal, etc.
