Nightly Builds use only if you feel confident
Every night, a little gnome called Jenkins walks around our servers looking for changes occurred during the day and, when he finds any, he feels so happy he starts the build process!
Beware though, as the nightly build represents the latest and greatest version off the code, but there is no guarantee that these versions are stable (they probably are not). It is build from the latest sources, without extensive checking
And probably worse: The nightly is the playground of the contributors. No testing has been done, no validation has been done.
