Sounds sensible to me. But while at it, how about dropping those
"daily" / "Archived development" builds, at least from documentation
and Rockbox Utility? People install either the latest release or the
current snapshot, and daily builds being somewhat more stable (which,
IIRC, was the intention of them some years back) isn't the case at
And as an alternate proposal, how about "Development snapshot" instead
of "Development build"?
