I'm not familiar with those distribution method in details, looking at the top general guidelines
could you come up with some that follow those?

You are not allowed to distribute unreleased material outside the developer community. [1]
I would read that as users being outside the developer community.

Well a snapshots shot or nightly may be OK if it a) not use as a substitute for not voting
b) clearly marked so a user wouldn’t assume it a release and c) not placed in the main place
user go to to get it. I would guess that the above doesn’t qualify but check with your mentors.

Thanks,
Justin
