[Nagiosplug-help] RE: Nightly builds on sourceforge?

I've had a look at File Releases and I don't think it is really catered for
nightly builds. Not only does it appear unscriptable (you can upload files,
but you need to go through a web front end to apply), but it wants to retain
every file released, which would be a horrendous waste of space for our
purposes. I've raised a call to sourceforge for a way to support nightly
builds - I'll update here with any responses.

Actually, Subhendu has got a news item that references
http://www.debisschop.net/src/nagios, but it is called "Compiling Plugins".
If it is okay, I think I'll create a news item called "If you have
problems..." which will basically be the stuff in the SUPPORT file.

By the way, the SUPPORT file is not being distributed. I'll make the change
to Makefile.am when I can.
