I appreciate that both URLs have "snapshot" in their name, but I am
uncomfortable with the way the filename is named as if it is a
release. I think this will lead to people getting confused that a
snapshot archive which may be very buggy is a release archive. That
will undoubtedly lead to bug reports here for a "release" which never

Can you build into the archive name something like this pattern:

I would also advocate spamming "snapshot" into various files in the
distro e.g. docs, release notes etc.
