Alias simply points to the destination, and will *not* update when the destination changes. Ie "a:latest" points to "b:1.0" - updating "b:1.0" only triggers deployments based on b:1.0. A deployment created from "a:latest" will use "b:1:0" in its pods.
Alias is really when you want to drive Openshift based on external versioned tags in another repo (my:latest updating from MySQL:5.1, MySQL:5.2, etc).
