To give them the same user experience as the 2.1 build ? :-)


We aren't providing snapshot builds and people want to try out the new 
features. This currently means they have to compile themselves. Failing 
unit tests are a hurdle that might stop their attempt to explore 
completely - the huge 'BUILD FAILED' banner at the end doesn't always 
convey the right message.

We should start providing snapshots again and push the archetype as main 
entry point for those wanting to explore.
