I agree and I would like to come to the state where we can simply use
the builds of the build bots and that they are compatible with the
release builds. I still don't know if that is possible today. At least
for Mac we don't have a build bot and we need the 64 bit changes.

Linux build bots are to new and are not comparable with the release
builds Ariel did. Windows is probably close but I don't know for sure if
it the same. For example if the 64 bit shell extensions are build
correct on the Windows bot.

A SNAPSHOT should be a special version where we agree more or less that
it is worth to take a closer look on it from a QA perspective. Nightly
builds are for developers mainly.

At the moment the SNAPSHOT tag is outdated and we build old version
which makes of course no sense.

I will move the tag on the branch for the next build ...

By the way where can I read the information about the setup of the build
bots and what is build when?
