In my experience (using the nighties for quite some time), tsvn is
awfully stable program and it in no way can lead to losing business
data. Using nightly svn builds is scary, but tsvn is the shell, not the
database core so no matter how you break the shell, it will not break
your data. Yeah, some little problems here & there, nothing big and if
you don't like - revert to the previous build. IMO nighties are better
than the production build, since they get fixes lot earlier. Stefan gets
quality code in, and the build system generates msi installers, no need
to compile yourself. Not using nightly builds as a general rule for
corporate users is completely okay, but tsvn is an exception to it.
