Got a few more questions about this:

1. Is that nightly US East coast, US West coast, Australia or UK time - or
maybe NZ pacific since there are developers in all these places as far as
I know?

2. Is there any difference between the two and if so how the heck do I
find out - and if there is no difference why do we have a branch already?

3. Assuming there is a difference, should those of us tracking SVN be
testing TRUNK or .21-fixes since the feedback from us is a large part of
what finds the bugs...
