In practice, the interval for the automated build is usually set at an
hour or so, and you rarely wait for it to start the build after a
commit...usually you just browse to the machine and kick it off
manually because you want to make sure your build is really sucessful
(not just on your machine, but for everyone) before you start working
on something else. So if you want to make a few small commits, you
usually have plenty of time.

The automated change detection is really just there as a failsafe, in
case you forget to kick off the build, or in case someone checks
something in by accident. 

And thanks for the reply.
