General work reports

* debugged usb stick image generation for Factory with KIWI
* continued work on meta data generation for installation medias

* submit request should be implemented in the API today.
* missing: validation of request xml

* backend can reuse remote schedulers, some calls need to be routed via the
api to get real use out of this.
This feature will allow easy setup of own build service instances by reusing
the base projects of build host.
* binary repository cache implemented, but it blocks the source server too
long atm.
* added keeplink parameter to avoid removal of source linked packages

* worked on hermes web frontend (codename starship)

* worked a bit on hermes, esp on notification message abstraction.
* Hermes is not yet integrated in the build service, but get tested with
SWAMP instance to detect bottle necks and performance.

* worked on opensuse forum theme.

* new osc release is building atm.
- further support of submit request handling
- link handling is new, source linked packages can be build now :)
- commit handling of source links not yet implemented, need info about

people are:
