What's the difference between 94P3_q_image.tgz and image_v_94P3.tgz?

Sycraft

When I download images for updating our FAS, I see there are basically two copies of everyting a "q" version and a "v" version. I haven't been able to find out what the difference is. The "q" ones seem to work fine for updating the firmware so there is no issue, I'm just curious, I can't imagine there's extra files there for no reason.

The q image is for hardware appliances, while the v image is for virtual appliances.
