When I download "mozilla-win32-installer.exe" from the "latest" directory I have 
no clue whether it's the trunk build or the non-trunk build.
Couldn't the installers be named:
"mozilla-win32-installer-trunk.exe"
"mozilla-win32-installer.exe"

IMO it should also be the case for the normal zip and the talkback zip.
For the mac build, it's easy : there are mozilla-mac-MN6.sea.bin and
mozilla-mac-MTrunk.sea.bin.

It would be easier if it is the same for every platform build

I've filed http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=59487 about the missing 
sync between installer names. Please add your comment to that bug.

Changes to nightly automation required.  Reassigning to leaf.

wontfix.

making this change adds additional manual overhead of cleaning out latest every
time we change milestones and is a PITA.  it's common knowledge, don't take
builds from the latest directory when branch and trunk builds are taking place.
 If anything changes in this regard it will be that we remove the latest
directory entirely.

um, what are you talking about? You're saying that both trunk and branch 
builds are going in to ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest ?

that should not be the case. 

branch builds to in to
ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest-{$BRANCH-NAME}

trunk builds go in to 
ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest-trunk
and 
ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest is a link to latest-trunk.


If this is not the case, please say so.j
