Cool. But why isn't it on http://wordpress.org/download/nightly/ ?
It's not such a secret, is it? Or is it not on the page because nobody
has touched this page for ages? ;)

Why not change the respective part of the text to something like:

"If you would like to be part of this process, please join the WP
Testers mailing list. You can download nightly builds[1], or you can
download the latest development snapshot[2]. When you report a bug,
please be sure to include information about the build you're using."

Additionaly, development builds could have the build number in
wp-includes/version.php, and they could display it in the admin footer.

[1] http://static.wordpress.org/builds/
[2] (a link that will redirect to the latest zip snapshot in Trac)

(Maybe it's a good idea to file a bug for this.)
