    Well i have created a script thanks to ScytheX10 for his commands on downloading and building. Now this works for debian only as far as i am concerned.
    1. Extract the script onto your home directory
    2.Open up terminal and install maven2 and git. (my example, sudo apt-get install maven2 git)
    3. Type in
    chmod +x update.sh
    (or alternatively, open up the properties of the file and set it as an executable.)
    4. Type in
    5. Your done, the snapshot will be in your home directory.

    Now to only update, just repeat step 4-5.

    A for effort..
    F for fail.

    You have a hard coded home path in the first script that nobody except "honey" will have, and an assumption that the system uses apt-get in the next.. so many distroes will not be able to use it.

    try $HOME (as in, the HOME variable) for scripts.
    cd $HOME
    mv /bla/bla $HOME/bladir
    also, provide an argument for what repo/package system they use.
    so they can start the script ./script apt-get or ./script yum etc

    Easier update script:

    wget "http://artifacts.lukegb.com/artifactory/plugins-snapshot/org/bukkit/craftbukkit/0.0.1-SNAPSHOT/craftbukkit-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar"
    rm craftbukkit.jar
    mv craftbukkit-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar craftbukkit.jar
    java -Xms1024M -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar nogui
    That gives you the latest build every time you start up your server.

    Note: script assumes you run it from your main Minecraft server directory. For me, this is /opt/craftbukkit.
