Although such daily build removal has been done in the past (was e.g. my
oops to break it recently), I'm against that practice.
A daily build is a dumb, automated thing, for good reason. It's just a
snapshot of the development, no more, no less. It is not guaranteed to work. Don't
confuse this with a release. We're definitely not doing daily releases.
Feedback is highly welcome, so we can fix bugs and tomorrows' build can be
better, if the developers are quick. Removing it, or even worse: replacing it
is a manual interaction which takes some maintanance effort. To be avoided.
We're probably spoiled by the quality of the average daily build, but this
is not to be taken for granted. If you require something stable, use the
latest release, which is 2.1 in out case.
