I can also say the process is a bit annoying and quirky. Anything that can be done to make publishing snapshots easier would be a great improvement as it would mean /TR/ would be kept up to date more carefully, and obsoleted specs such as those discussed in this thread would reflect their real status at /TR/.

I acknowledge that changing process and tools around this is hard and takes time, and appreciate the effort of all the people who are trying to fix this issue at W3C. My assumption is this is a well-known issue, and not something new.

Thanks for your offer to help :)
