Yes this does happen but it's bad practice on our part.  I prefer a build on
each commit so it's easier to catch the offending commit and isolate it to a
user who can be informed immediately while they still have a mental stack in

I personally would like to know immediately when I goofed something while
that something is still in my head.

I think we should do both nightly and on commit builds.  The nightly builds
can package up the product and provide it for human testers.  The products
can then be pushed to machines which can run other tests on it.  Like
installing the products, perf tests, conformance (vsldap) tests, and other
kinds of integration tests.  Then we can compile daily reports.

I'd push the results to an CI specific mailing list.  This way anyone can
register to get these notifications or unregister when they like.  It would
be easy to ask for a new ci@d.a.o mailing list from infra just for this.
