1) the builds as are now are using "uppbox/lpbuild2/mkfile". Could this be included into nightlies (and stables), so it doesn't have to be pulled from github, which causes potential version mismatch? Or could this probably be completely replaced by another build mechanism present? (I'm asking the later one simply because I don't know. If so, please enlighten me.)

2) could at least nightlies emit hash file(s), that could be grabbed for automatic checking? (Some sha256sums and sha512sums would be nice. Similar to say < h**ps://download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net/pub/firefox/night ly/latest-mozilla-central/firefox-55.0a1.en-US.linux-x86_64. checksums >, though a standalone file for each package and algo would be preferred.)

3) could at least nightlies emit some latest version file? Simply a text file, that contains nothing more that latest release number for quick and easy checking and also for automatic download and rebuild mechanism. (Similar to say <h**ps://www.hiawatha-webserver.org/latest>.)

Ad 1) The "uppbox/lpbuild2/mkfile" (a.k.a. universal makefile) shouldn't be necessary anymore. Amrein did a good amount of work to bring the regular makefile into usable state, so it should be possible to build any other packages with it. Also, the univeresal makefile is not properly maintained lately (due to lack of time on my part :-( ), so there is big possibility of breakage.
