Mark is planning to do this. Timestamped builds aren't official
releases either, though in some cases they have been used so care is
needed.

Most important is that the proper use of these repositories is
properly documented and communicated to avoid it happening in the
future. Robert from Jakarta was looking at doing some release
documentation for the foundation site, so I can probably include
something there.

I'm hoping to get around to writing up other repository stuff tonight.
