[Jenkins-infra] Considering a new Maven repo for pre-release/incremental builds of plugins/core

This past week I was in San Jose chatting with Carlos Sanchez (csanchez) about
some tooling we will need to support the eventual shipping of master-branch
builds (etc) within Jenkins Essentials

Rather than attempting to make sense thousands of SNAPSHOT versions in a
repository, I suggested to Carlos that we create a new, tightly managed and
garbage collected, Maven repository specifically for this purpose in

This would mean we'd have a repository *just* for these pre-release builds
(e.g. some-plugin-2.3.0-abdc3e.jar). My thinking is that the repository should
be garbage collecting/deleting artifacts after 30 days, and be completely
separate from the existing repositories to avoid negatively impacting the
quality of service for the existing Update Center procesess.

Before I write this all down into an IEP,  and do a necessary dive into
Artifactory documentation, I wanted to get some thoughts from others.
