Daily Builds work in Lucid

Registered by Robbie Williamson on 2009-11-06

What can we do to improve the daily builds effort? How do we get more people interested in doing daily builds for Ubuntu using it?

2009-11-13 mdz: The goal of this effort is rumoured to be to help us deal more effectively with upstream bugs, by being able to verify them on the latest upstream code. Is it helping? Why or why not?
2009-12-02 james-w: mdz: I'm not sure we have enough people running daily builds yet to know how much it helps.
