yes this is the way I use also.

I asked for automated build scripts and Michele mentioned something about
making such public, but I don't know what happened.
I wrote one big Makefile that I used to build the packages with their
dependencies, but its rather fast and dirty solution - so I prefer not to
show it :)

However you are on the right path if you stick to the base version - i.e.
you rebuild packages that are same branch that you are on. Example
You'll probably have issues if you build 14.1.0 and run them on base 14.0.5
and you'll need to rebuild dependencies too.

I was intending to setup repo for 14.1 (DEVELOPMENT), but did not find time
so far to read the howto. However it might be that after I migrate my build
machine I could also find some time to do this around or after Christmas.
I've been using this for almost an year now without problems.
