   Now that 
   i)  The live tree is available via CVS.
   ii) The source tree is quite a lot bigger than it used to be.

   Is is still sensible to build nightly snapshots?  Gcc seems to manage 
   fairly well on weekly snapshots, and in some respects this makes a more 
   stable reference point when folks want to refer to "the current snapshot".

Personally, I don't care.  The snapshot process is completely

I know that some people are unable to use CVS due to firewall issues,
so for them daily snapshots might be more convenient.

Note that there is already a weekly snapshot in the FTP directory, as
well as the daily snapshots.
