There are Jenkins Admins here who can help if you go that way.

However I can set you up a buildbot job to do what you need and I think it
does make
Sense, lots of projects utilise buildbot just to provide snapshots. (I'll
also throw in a RAT
Report step too)

Snapshots would be available at a url of
ci.apache.org/projects/spamassassin/snapshots/
Or similar.

Anyway, let me know what you decide.
