After some discussions on atari-forum, I think there are some
things that we could improve in documentation for the end users.

1. Add note with every build under
This is automatic build from a commit in Hatari Mercurial repository.

The resulting binary is NOT tested, it's FOR testing.

Maybe also state that:
If you try it, send a note to <email address> whether it worked or not, and on which specific OS version you tried it on.

<email address> could be e.g. hatari-users.  Downside is that
somebody would need to accept non-subscriber mail.


2. Note in root about on which
    OSes the builds have been tested to work (and not to work)
    and *when* that testing was done.  Some kind of note about
    who did the testing could also be useful.

1 and 2 done!

Great, thanks!

I think it would be good to have 1) added also to *each* of the build
directories at end of the build, in case user is given a link that
points directly into into a specific build (and he doesn't read
the docs higher in the hierarchy):
