[VFS] Snapshot timestamped version has disappeared from the m1 snapshot repo!

It looks like there is an automated process to keep a week's worth of
nightly builds.  Files from 7/20 to 7/26 are present right now:
   http://people.apache.org/repo/m1-snapshot-repository/commons-vfs/jars/

(Changing the build to publish both -YYYYMMDD.jar and -SNAPSHOT.jar
might help, then the latest code would always be available at a fixed
filename.)

I think this is a great idea.
Users in the past already asked to have this thing.

@phil: What do you think, can we have this?
Or is it a bad idea to do this for all projects by default?
I can setup my own cronjob to create the link then.


Ciao,
Mario

+1. The jars we're deploying seem useless currently if people can't
depend on them in a snapshot way. Do we even need the dated one?
Should it be SNAPSHOT-YYYYMMDD? I'm not sure what the recommended way
is to do snapshots nowadays.

I think it needs to end in -SNAPSHOT for Maven to recognize it.  Do
you have a way to get the <currentVersion> out of project.xml/pom.xml
?  For VFS it's 1.0-RC8-SNAPSHOT.

The dated ones have some value.  If something goes wrong in "the
latest" nightly, you can change your pom to depend on yesterday's
until you sort out the problem.

This doesn't address Vincent's concern of having a stable build to
depend on, but that's what releases are for. :)

Sorry, I have been on the road and pegged this week.  I thought about
rigging a symlink to the latest dated snap named -SNAPSHOT.  I could
do this if people would prefer.  I could also modify the script to
just overwrite the snap each night - but I thought the consensus was
we wanted dated snaps.

I will add the -SNAPSHOT symlinks this weekend if there are no
objections or better ideas.  Of course, anyone else is welcome to make
the change to the script in svn.
