Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Apache NetBeans Incubator Proposal
Date Sun, 18 Sep 2016 07:39:10 GMT
AGES ago (~2002), I was running a project that used the which
is the RCP part of NetBeans. At that time, we had a job that downloaded the
nightly builds to be tested and incorporated into our continuous build. The
nightly, compared to source tree, had the advantage of being tested before
published. If test failed, there were no build (IIRC).

So, "developers" could be broader, but that is potentially always the case
"pull from source tree"...
