Snapshots are a Maven concept... a version number ending in -SNAPSHOT
indicates that the module is in development and may change.  Then you
go through the release process and release a certain version number.
That artifact never changes after it is released.

It's a good idea to have separate repositories for these two types of
artifacts, which is why Archiva comes pre-configured that way.  But if
it doesn't fit your team or your project, you can delete them and
create what you need.
