I'm pretty sure the ReleaseTodo page is wrong on this.

Building from a source distribution should *not* produce artifacts that have the same version
in their names as the binary release.  We don't want same-version-but-different binary artifacts
being accidentally produced.  There's nothing stopping people from changing this themselves,
of course, so leaving the pre-release version name, including the "-SNAPSHOT" suffix, in the
source release is just a passive defense against this kind of mistake.

I'll change the ReleaseTodo page if there are no objections.
