I uploaded a new base build for BottomFeeder last night. I yanked another one of the components we use out of the base image - and now have it loading at startup. That will certainly make it easier to upgrade it. So if you are using the 2.8 dev stream, it's likely a good idea to grab the whole base again.
This should all settle down when 7.1 ships. I'm hoping to not require a new base image after that until the VW 7.2 release time frame.
