 +==== Nightly builds ====

 +  * Update the //branches// variable to specify the names of all the repository branches for which a nightly build is required
 +
 +To make the change permanent, the file should be committed to the //mantisbt/mantisbt-tools// repository.
 +
 +If desired, the script may be executed manually at this point. Note that it normally does not produce any output; check the log file at ''/var/log/nightly-builds.log'' for errors.
