FreeBSD 10-CURRENT and 9-STABLE snapshots

A number of FreeBSD users have displayed interest in the availability
and testing of -STABLE and -CURRENT snapshot releases.

I have been working on generating snapshots regularly, and now would
like to announce their availability for those interested in testing.

Please note, as always with the -STABLE and -CURRENT branches, these
snapshots are not intended for production systems.

The snapshots available are:

 - 10.0-CURRENT amd64
 - 10.0-CURRENT i386
 - 9.1-PRERELEASE amd64
 - 9.1-PRERELEASE i386

Note that the 9.1-PRERELEASE snapshots are the stable/9 branch, not what
will eventually be 9.1-RELEASE.

I do not yet have snapshots for the 8-STABLE branch, but am working on
the magic to make that happen as well.  There are also no bootonly ISOs,
since the necessary distribution sets are not available on the FreeBSD
FTP servers, so I cannot direct the installer to a different location
very easily.

The URL for the snapshots is:

The SHA256 of the xz(1)-compressed install medium follows, and is also
included in a plain-text file on the site.

FreeBSD-10.0-CURRENT-amd64-memstick.xz = 8779f5925cb903c64d647392f6af825d5e74019d6d13222045d69091b03a81ff
FreeBSD-10.0-CURRENT-amd64-release.iso.xz = cc3934c947563c23f92ba1cd8ca7ded3999dfbc050e2b2647c294e442f267040
FreeBSD-10.0-CURRENT-i386-memstick.xz = 9eb7ff8e28c0c524d2794828acb601b9b7079c1d00017e3bf84b974ff4412e42
FreeBSD-10.0-CURRENT-i386-release.iso.xz = 0d1334fea13e16cb0d06a3f3c3fb7b0e1223baf06a06a889a6cffa6981348ae5

FreeBSD-9.1-PRERELEASE-i386-memstick.xz = 4e98ffe63b186b0e26f22c3ddfb0582019bf352d1ea39da2757817c809872b67
FreeBSD-9.1-PRERELEASE-i386-release.iso.xz = 0bce6f2a9626705484ff7cac18623f714e289ef6ddc0b6199d78eba37ded2ca4

The "Latest" directory on the site will always point to the latest batch
of snapshots, which right now my goal is to regenerate every few days
(I do not have a definitive timeframe in mind yet).

I hope these are useful to the FreeBSD community.  Feedback on this is
welcome, as always.
