@Pedro, @Norbert

I think you are both missing the point. This announce simply demarks a point
of the QA work from the TinderBox buildbot (or self compiled)
builds to an "official" LibreOffice snapshot build.

The Windows build for example, available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/pre-releases/win/x86/ will actually be
signed by The Document Foundation as opposed to TinderBox.

Nothing really changes, the daily builds of master will continue to be
built, and most folks will pull from TinderBox--but bug issues will be
tracked relative to this build point.  I.e. unless bibsecting
folks should rebase to the "official" alpha or to newer TB builds of master. 
TB or self builds of master, e.g., should be retired.

As an aside, I agree that the issues of  fdo#58034
<https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=58034>   are a nuisance.
Fixing the EXTRA_BUILDID details in the incremental daily builds would be
helpful, but it does not prevent the effective use of the daily builds for
QA.  Making the git commit ID directly available in the installer packaging
would be a convenience--for Windows builds that would be in the .MSI as a
Property table entry or perhaps in the Summary Information comments to
supplement the CLSID/GUID
