That is the place.

Typically tinderbox. so anyone running a tinderbox that has a ssh
access to the box hosting dev-builds.libreoffice.org can upload

If the tinderbox script is setup as such, it will attempt the upload
the first successful build of the day (that is after 00:00 UTC)

So how often is variable, ideally once a day... but that may not be
the case for 3 main reasons:
the tinderbox is down, the built tree is broken and no build succeeded
that day, or there was no activity in that tree during that day.
But the directory 'current' should link to the latest available
so for instance
point to the latest available daily-build out of master from the
tinderbox 'MacOSX_10.6.7_intel_no_moz '

There is no naming convention at this point for tinderbox, but most
are named in a way that should allow to guess what it is about. in the
example above the build was on a Mac, OSX 10.6.7 with the
--without-mozilla options
if you want to know exactly what options are used you can refer to
and look at a build log for that tinderbox.

for instance the build log start with

Which gives you exactly what was built (the git-sha of each repo)
and the exact list of configuration options used to build.

Note: that is build-log produced by tinderbuild2, the tinderbuild
script produce a slightly different output but the same information
are still available

I'm not sure I understand the question. manual about what ?

> - Is parallel installation possible / planned?

That is platform dependent. For Mac all you need is to mount the .dmg
and run it from that mounted volume... so yes.
For other platform I don't know
