More snapshots

    Is it possible to produce more snapshots as the code is changing.

    Some of us, cannot compile the latest code in the SVN, but would like to
    test/enjoy the different enhancements in the program.

    So, it would be possible to produce snapshots for the latest changes (or night
    builds). This can make the community help you more on testing and also speed
    up the process of catching bugs.

    Is it possible to produce something like this? Nor on daily basis, but what
    about monthly? or when some bugs or features get fixed/added?

    This is a good idea. I would like to test some new tools.
    For example, my TS does not recognize the env defined with newtheorem and I
    found some posts fixing this but I should compile and I am not an expert to
    try this. So it is better to wait for a possible instalation from terminal or
    to get a deb file.

    I don't know how much effort the deployment is. Benito would have to comment,
    because he does all the work there.

    However the snapshots are just an additional service and currently not meant
    to appear frequently. If you really want to test the svn, I'd recommend to
    compile it yourself. It's really not that complicated. A basic description of
    the necessary steps is already available on the wiki. Maybe someone is willing
    to extend it to a real step-by-step guide.

    Not really, I can only make the Linux build and Jan creates the others.

    The opensuse build service might be able to create automatically snapshots
    from the latest svn, but I don't think you need Linux snapshots, since
    is the easiest system to compile txs on, with the package manager
    installing all dependancies.

    And Linux snapshots can also be found in blahota's ppa:
