    Well?

    It runs every day, so daily, but it runs at night, so nightly.

    Google has 184,000 hits for daily, and 404,000 for nightly. WebKit,
    WordPress, Mozilla, Glassfish, Adobe and CERN all call it nightly. I'm de
    facto in charge of ours, and i've consistently referred to it as the
    nightly. I've just documented it on a wiki page called NightlyBuild.

    The sysadmin has just set up a DNS alias called daily.shop.project.com.

    I'm going to have to change my documentation, aren't i?

    Or tell the sysadmin that the DNS alias is inconsistent with your
    nomenclature and should be changed to reflect it.

    Bien sur, quotidien!

    That would explain some of the database design i've seen recently.

    Daily and nightly does not conflict, so why bother changing anything.
