the trouble with the maven snapshots are the artifacts aren't tagged to 
a particular date and time; you get rolled forward to whatever is the 
latest at a time of maven's choosing. As nobody understands when and why 
it makes those decisions, there is no guarantee two people will be using 
the same version, which makes filing bugreps all but impossible, which 
is why nobody rational should be using them downstream. It's safer to 
build and release your own versions.

+1 for putting the RC releases into a public maven/ivy repository
