Here's some refinement:

   Nightly builds are generated automatically. There is no
   guarantee that they will actually work nor that they will
   include optional build components that are present in
   official releases, such as JSR169 support, OSGi support,
   and JDBC 4.0 support.

   Production systems should *always* use the official release.
