    Currently it's nightly. Larry has offered to run it more often if
    someone can provide a dedicated fast machine to run it on. (Larry: is
    it a matter of memory or of CPU or both? If nothing else we should
    have the old server, dual P3/1133 with 6 GB RAM, coming
    free soon.)

    Please let me know if there is something that should be put on; we can host repositories there of course.
