We do not need nightlies, we need an estimate of a final build from the boxes tree (i.e. once Khaled says “its done”) and then documents to compare to like I mention in my other email.

We only need a few pairs of eyes to make comparisons, and a few informed minds about whether to accept any differences or not.
