Subject Re: Where to publish Xalan code on http://www.apache.org/dist (fwd)

Maybe I formed my ideas earlier in Mavens history when SNAPSHOT was 
simply a symlink that could be moved to point at any release. Some 
places in the repository actually have SNAPSHOT symlinks that point to a 
fully versioned releases... These are not interim builds...

lrwxrwxr-x  1 jvanzyl    apcvs     26 Jan 17  2004 
excalibur-logger-SNAPSHOT.jar -> excalibur-logger-1.0.1.jar
lrwxrwxr-x  1 rdonkin   apcvs      16 Jul 19 15:18 jaxme-rt-SNAPSHOT.jar 
-> jaxme-rt-0.3.jar
lrwxrwxr-x  1 rdonkin   apcvs      16 Jul 19 15:17 jaxme-xs-SNAPSHOT.jar 
-> jaxme-xs-0.3.jar

Clearly there is vague definition here if this symlink can point at a 
release like this.

Some are concerned that removing these could cause some folks distros to 
break. Though, no one in thier right mind should release against a SNAPSHOT.
