The only difference to a snapshot releases is that we publish identifiable 
artifacts like cocoon-forms-r412334.jar instead of cocoon-forms-SNAPSHOT.jar.
Compare it with a nightly build and producing nightly builds has been done for ages.

But basically you're right that we have to clarify the situation in general. How 
shall we proceed to get an answer to the question of "unofficial" artifact 
releases? Is the pmc@cocoon in the position to decide such things itself our do 
we have to discuss this issue with board@apache? WDOT?

That would be great!
