I agree myself that this is a common "problem".

I have also noticed (for instance for artifacts I need from Felix) that 
release:prepare will fail, unless you have commit access to the SVN.

I am curious to know how this is different from the "changing snapshot" that 
is a problem mentioned above. IIUIC, both are temporary and will disappear in 
due time, so the only difference would be the name itself.

I don't have the answer how it should be dealt with. I think the closes you 
can do is that the Continuum build output is copied into an area, either on 
the cocoon zone or to cocoondev, which is not official and even some big 
disclaimers that it is not official.

Please observe that Apache Legal@ may have some comment of this, still. I 
suggest that there is a check with before going down 
this route.
