    we all know that minecraft has 1.3 weekly snapshots
    with those releases is it possible to have a craftbukkit snapshot of the 1.3 also
    since half of the bukkit team works for mojang

    (Found by searching 'snapshots' on the forum)

    The short of it is that no, there will not be Bukkit releases geared towards snapshots. It takes well over a week to port a given version of Minecraft over to Bukkit, debug it, polish it, etc. So by the time they're ready to release a stable Bukkit snapshot for the most recent Minecraft snapshot, it will no longer be the most recent Minecraft snapshot.

    If you recall, the preview released a week before the official 1.2 update was the same as the 1.2 release. This gave everyone plenty of time to update before the official update.

    It takes a great deal of work to port a new version to CraftBukkit. Snapshots do not always contain items or features that would make it into the final release. Porting a snapshot to CraftBukkit does not guarantee your plugins will or won't work for the final release.

    While it might be cool to see, I would rather the team focuses on bug fixes and API improvements than trying to constantly port the snapshots.
