No, as far as I know, the build server is only used for continuous 
integration. Once the tests have been run and potential failure have 
been reported, I think the built jars are dropped.

There are no official Apache supported builds for unreleased version. 
The release process which involve a vote by the community is the 
milestone that allow publishing. Before that, there can only be 
unsupported, unofficial snapshot build. We don't do them really often 
and in fact prefer that people who really want the development version 
built it by themselves and rely on the subversion tree directly.

One should be aware that the development version is really that: a 
*development* version. Things change quite often. These versions 
therefore have some advantages (fixed bugs, new features, performances 
improvements ...) but also some drawbacks (things appear, disappear, 
change name, change API at a fast pace). So they are not suited to 
everyone and publishing pre-built binaries would create a false feeling 
of stability to most users.

What would you need a development snapshot for ? Could you use the 
subversion repository (or the git mirror) instead ?
