I believe that daily builds will be very helpful for module developers
especially, plenty of whom use Ubuntu. Also, there is considerable
minor work being done in Xiphos right now, small changes and fixes to
the display in relation to a huge number of modules being created for
a large organization. The daily builds will be helpful (and already
have been) for this project.
