Requests from power users to share their own builds has been floating around. Its clear how such images might cause confusion all around the forum when people start to mix feedback from these releases with feedback from the official ones.
That said its undoubtedly helpful and very beneficial for development to get feeback and reports about yet to be released issues which helps in making official releases more robust (just check the bug reports and developer/user interactions on XBMC-Pivos github).
So instead of banning this, lets regulate it and keep everyone happy.
Here is the rules for now (pending changes):
- Keep all discussions about user built builds to this thread.
- Always post your build with a matching github commit label.
- Any mods or tweaks done on top of the master code needs to be listed.
- optional: use http://d-h.st/ to upload you image.
Thanks everyone for contributing in this and a special "thank you" to rapalax for the suggestion.

(update.img is a symlink to the most recent build)
These builds are straight git pulls - no modifications. Builds commence at 0400 UTC if there has been a commit to git within the previous 24 hours. Both M1 and M3 builds are usually completed before 0600 UTC. 5 most recent builds are kept in the folder for rolling back, bug verification etc.
