Shredder (aka Thunderbird/Icedove) Nightly Builds

Last August I listened to Axel Beckert's (abe) talk at FrOSCon[1] about
*Automated building .deb packages from VCS snapshots*. Axel builds the
web browser Conkeror[2] this way and I daydreamed from a nightly built
Icedove. Mozilla provides nightly snapshots of Thunderbird, but these
are compressed tar files and I'm too lazy to do things (download,
extract, remove, purge, ...) which a package manager does better and
faster than me.

Today, four months later, I want to announce my nightly build service
for Icedove[3]. It provides binary packages - *shredder-nightly* - for
i386 and amd64 in a signed APT repository.
