 So hashing (which maven does) is as much as we can really practically
do automated.

Looks also like we have consensus on the "snapshot" semantics - i.e.,
just overwrite with a new snap each night.  If there are no objections
in the next couple of days, I will go ahead and make the change to
support this, or someone else can.

I assume the following is correct for maven 1:


# Repository to deploy snapshots

I assume I can also specify these with -D on the m1 command line?

Also, the target is "jar:deploy" right (assuming all have -SNAPSHOT in
trunk version)?

This last bit raises an issue that I had to hack around for [scxml]
and that we might want to consider standardizing - all trunk POMs have
-SNAPSHOT version names.  This means that RCs *must* be built from
branches.  Personally, I think that is a good idea.
