I think Bulgarian is largely nonsense too, but that's only because I
don't speak it. There really is a system to the numbering scheme.

They're orderly and meaningful. The numbering sequence tells you the
type and scope of the release, how stable it is thought to be, and
whether it is a final, public release.

It's my understanding (which could be wrong) that nightly builds refer
to the source code, not the compiled apps. I don't think they really are
nightly but they happen more often than the ones peons like us can
access. So dig into git and compile away. :)
