IMHO, if HP releases are to happen more frequently, a simple way to
upgrade would be desirable rather than having to download a new
multi-MiB full installer image each time only because a single package
was updated (and the ability to have access to multiple HP releases
side-by-side -- in case that isn't supported already)

Or put differently, how shall HP users be informed they're not running
the latest HP version with all known critical bugs fixed?
