Description

9 months ago
Nightly builds are currently unuseable and also broken because comm-central is still the top sourcedir in the old builder configs. ewong is doing the new infra and before this one isn't able to build we won't be able to do comm-esr60+ builds. So state this on the website and temporary remove the link to the nightly builds.

Posted patch 1475843-NightlyBuilds.patch (obsolete) — Splinter Review
I added Bills page so that we are able to provide some interim test releases. Maybe add a stronger wording that these are not official project releases?

Backup of what?

Is this line worth being made bold?

We are in the process of creating a new infrastructure to switch to and, once that is ready, will look to provide alpha and beta builds.

Can't probably be stated often enough even if it falls on deaf ears so yes :)
