Since the fop-pdf-images has had on average one commit per month for the past 6 months a nightly build seems overkill. So instead I requested that xmlgraphics be added to the svnpubsub for dev and release packages.

Hi Luis,

if your goal is to provide snapshots to users, it's best to do the same
as Simon did for FOP: Set up nightly builds using Buildbot:
It's just a Jira request to Infra away. That solves the problem of where
to place the build artifacts.

The stuff under is pretty much the old way of doing
nightly builds. I'm actually surprised it still works. But it's better

I'm sorry, Luis, but this is unacceptable. The "dist" directory is for
releases ONLY and all artifacts put there have to be vetted by the PMC.
Nightly snapshots can be set up if necessary but they need to be
downloaded from a different location than the distribution
infrastructure. See FOP's snapshots here, for example:

Please remove the artifacts from the dist repository.
