IMO first we should decide if building 3.4.1 alphas/betas or 3.5 Developer
Snapshots; yes, the naming is a mess, we should clear this up, also
clear the page
IIRC in OOo times, Developer Snapshots where builds from the main code
line, for example
Betas where from the release code line, for example

I guess we could build both, at different intervals, a 3.5 Dev.Snap. per
month and a 3.4.1 beta every week or two, for example.
