Comment (by dd32):

 > Perhaps we could set up the API to also return the correct hashes for
 nightly builds? We could at least use that as a limited basis for testing.

 The Auto-Updates API responses are currently returning
 `3.7-alpha-20130912` as the version number, if we could get the nightly
 builds script to update the $wp_version field to either a date, or an up-
 to-date revision, I'm sure we can make it happen. The major problem at
 present is that 1 version string can refer to any build in the last week
 or so normally..
 The crucial part is that we need to get everything returning the same
 version strings, so that things will match up.
