On the Phoenix Project web pages, there are two different links to "latest builds". The first one ("Nightly binaries") points to http://komodo.mozilla.org/pub/phoenix/n ... test-trunk and the other one (choose "Phoenix Releases", then "Download the latest Phoenix nightly build") points to http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/phoenix/nightly/latest-trunk.

It may seem stupid but I don't understand the differences between the two, so which one should I choose (rather than stupidly comparing file dates and timestamps) to make sure I'm testing the latest one ?

:oops:

komodo.mozilla.org is a mirror of the ftp.mozilla.org. They should usually contain the same stuff, the different timestamps are only due to different timezones.

(somewhat related) On the Phoenix Releases page there are two links. The "latest builds" links to a directory which contains the very latest builds. That directory doesn't contain all of the builds from previous days. If you want to get a build from a few days ago or last week then you want the "other builds" link.

(more to the point) The links on the releases page and the project page, one to komodo.mozilla.org and one to ftp.mozilla.org are both pointing to the same directory. The difference is that komodo.mozilla.org is the small server with poor bandwidth we move the builds to and ftp.mozilla.org is the large group of servers (a round-robbin, whatever that means) which mirrors the komodo.mozilla.org content. Please use the ftp.mozilla.org server unless something is wrong with it. Thanks.

Thanks ASA. That makes it clearer now. May be these Phoenix web page might be somewhat clarified. I mean in the future.

Yes. I've got a partial rewrite and reorganization of the Phoenix project pages in my local tree but haven't got it far enough along to land it yet. Hopefully before 1.0 ;-)
