 Developer builds are not official releases and may be unstable.  But they can be useful to
download for those who 
 need early access to builds, but who do not want to compile their own build. They are announced
and discussed only on the development list, as they are not production builds.  Apache OpenOffice
currently has two types of development builds: those generated by buildbots, and those manually
generated/built.
