Hello, is it possible to provide frequent source snapshots of the

pretty fast. I dont know how big the bzr tree currently is. It would
be useful for people who dont want to get directly involved with Emacs
development, but still want a very recent version of it. For most
these people keeping track of commit history doesnt make sense. AFAIK
there is an unofficial repository providing binary packages for Debian
and Ubuntu packages [3] plus Ubuntu has emacs-snapshot in their
universe repository but package is from 2009 [4]. Hopefully providing
frequent snapshots of the sources tree will ease things for everyone
as the Emacs sources without commit history are ~100mb. Anyone else
finds this a good idea?

You can always get the snapshot from cgit, for example,


would assume that being snapshot of a specific day.

Let's point at the pure address again:
