Subject AW: Snapshot access to regular users of Ant
Date Sun, 18 Mar 2018 14:10:33 GMT
I dont see the automatic snapshots as a problem.
We should not ask "all" users to use them, but for single users that may be ok. 
They are "testing" (means DEV) the current/upcoming version against their (problematic) scenario.
