 +Help us testing new X2Go component versions by installing nightly built X2Go packages on your test rigs. Use nightly-builds at your very own risk and give feedback if things break after installation of nightly built packages. 
 + 
 +If unsure, ask on [[contact:​start#​join_us_on_irc|IRC]] or on the [[contact:​start#​mailing_lists|X2Go development mailing list]] before installing nightly built packages.

 +**FYI:** For those who wonder what the word ,,​heuler"​ means when stumbling over some of the nightly-builds package archive URLs. A ,,​heuler"​ is the German word for a [[http://​de.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Seehund#​Heuler|baby seal]] that has been abandoned by its mother (or whose mother has been killed by seal hunters).
