Yup sure.
But some builds use the option "Deploy artifacts to Maven repository"
to publish snapshots to

To test snapshot builds users add a repository in their setting or
pom, most of the time they have added

So if we activate this new plugin and builds doesn't use anymore the
option "Deploy artifacts to Maven repository", snapshots will be
available only in
https://hudson.apache.org/hudson/plugin/repository/everything or/and
in the group https://repository.apache.org/content/groups/snapshots-group/

But using this new plugin will prevent having a user with karma able
to deploy to repository.apache.org (see first issue of this thread).

Makes sense ?
