It would be nice to have a "latest" snapshot together with all snapshots
that are supposed to solve a given issue. "latest" would be overwritten by
the last issue snapshot.
E.g. assuming that issue (MATH-799) is resolved, the following snapshots
would be available:

  math-commons.latest.jar -> math-commons.MATH-774.jar

Then, later, when issue MATH-768 is resolved:

  math-commons.latest.jar -> math-commons.MATH-768.jar

[Such a history might be useful to help users spot which change might have
resulted in breaking something.]
