Thanks Jürgen for this reminder

We should provide a HTML page with some help how to download and test the
master version. Otherwise Windows, Linux and Mac users who are not
developpers (and compilers) would not be able to help us testing the master

I remember there is one download page with a new Master Windows build every
week. Having the same for other distributions would help. Do you think
builders could provide some help to build a  single wiki page "Try the last
Master for Windows, Linux and mac distros ? Or this page already exists ?

Having a single link could help us in this list to call for testers among
the end users (via twitter and other channels)
