That'll work perfectly!

The daily snapshots are generated from git master every (european) night as if
they had been a "release" and are then uploaded and made avaiable. They mostly
differ from git in the way they ship with a configure already made etc, while
when you build from git you need to use ./buildconf first - or just use cmake.
