Do you really have to be aggressive to people who nicely provide a solution
to the "nightly build" problem?

For instructions on how to submit builds, it's as simple as "make Experimental",
and since it's opensource you can certainly find out what that does at the lower
level - where did you get any paranoiac idea about lock-in?

So you should be happy to find a solution rather than grumpy, no?

I do care (remember that I asked you when the EBN buildbots were down?), but it's much 
easier to care with automatic mail notifications than with  a webpage that 
one has to remember to go to.
