Is the Apr 10 build good enough to include as a stable build?

I suggest that recommending a nightly build as being stable simply means that you haven't discovered any bugs in the features that are important to you. As everyone uses different features and are, therefore, more affected by certain bugs, a recommendation made by someone who has not posted any faults or has not run the build through the smoketests is worth very little.

It would be helpful to only post bugs or problems for nightly builds than to say that you haven't experienced any problems with the 5 features that you use. The exception is of course if an annoying bug has been fixed.

No offense meant to Maneo or anyone else.

1) I currently plan on hosting .5, 02/21, 03/04, and 03/20 Are there any other stable builds I should be aware of?

2) Are there any other sites that currently have an archive of stable builds?

3) Also, what should I expect my monthly bandwidth usage to be?

4) Would such a site be useful, or would I just be wasting my time and money?

I think there's no need to host the recent builds, cause there held already:
EDIT: I just saw only till 2003-03-08 ...

Just link to the builds that were mentioned the most, perhaps instead of a website a sticky post in the builds thread might do the job...
