The daily builds based on latest master are fully automated as of today 
(or so I hope - will see tomorrow). The tagged release builds are not 
automated yet, mainly because there haven't been any new ones since I 
started doing this :) Will try to get that going now.

I wish I could say that the builds have been thoroughly tested, but that 
would be a lie. I have tested _some_ of the builds, mainly those 
relevant to my own systems, and AFAICT those work just fine. Either way 
I think those builds are preferable for Debian users over the 
alternatives in general, so the more people use them the better, and I'm 
more than happy to try to fix any issues that pop up.
