Like a "download setup.exe snapshot now!" link.

In that case we probably don't want it on the main page.

I currently build the snapshots on my home system and copy them to
sources.redhat.com.  I don't have a cron job set up yet since there
are some ssh key issues that I need to work out.  I just do it when I
think of it.  We used to use DJ's systems to do this and he did have a
cron job which produced the snapshots.  I changed this a while ago since
I thought it was important that the snapshots be made using the same
mechanism as the releases.

As long as you have the appropriate key, you should be able to copy
things to sources.redhat.com.  There aren't any cygwin cross tools on
that machine (and it is rather swamped anyway) so you couldn't do this
on sources.redhat.com itself.

Would just having a page with various, dated, versions of setup.exe
be enough:

setup-20011031.exe
setup-20011030.exe
setup-20011029.exe

?

Hmm.  Could we get setup.exe to install these, maybe?
