Yes, I understand that. Sorry, I thought this discussion was in the context of
Maven builds in commons at the moment.

Absolutely. I actually meant that it might be better to run nightly builds that
only build if the project has changed. This avoids unnecessary load, disk usage
and mirror syncing (if indeed the nightlies are mirrored) for projects that are
inactive or less active (there are a lot of commons projects and very few if any
get daily changes).
