 I am not sure what's the purpose of personal build. Can anyone give a sample scenario?

1. Developer Fred modifies foo.java and checks the change into his individual repository workspace.
2. Fred requests a personal build, specifying his individual repository workspace.
3. The build runs and builds Fred's changed version of foo.java.
4. Either (1) the personal build runs cleanly and Fred delivers to the stream, confident he won't break his team's build, or (2) Fred's personal build fails and he returns to step 1.

Using personal build is a best practice to avoid sharing bad changes with your team or breaking your team build.
