But it has changed. Very much so. A SNAPSHOT is not a release.

You give QA a release not a SNAPSHOT. That way there is no copying AT ALL. No risk. This is
the advice that many have been giving you. Not sure why you keep going on about copying a
snapshot. No one has EVER suggested that you copy anything.

Do your release testing on a release build and all will be well.
