Thanks for your prompt reply. I'm one of the technically ignorant
members of this forum and thought that a defective build like this one
could mess up someone's machine. Therefore my request for removal. I now
understand the procedure thanks to your clear explanation. My apologies
for the inconvenience caused.

*>*>|| 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.
