Plugin 'Development Release' ZIPs not updating with Release confirmation enabled

Description

It appears that some plugins are experiencing problems where the trunk ZIP file (plugin-name.zip) is not being updated with the latest changes in trunk, when they have release confirmations enabled.

The release ZIPs (tags) are created properly, but the trunk ZIP appears to be stale as of when the plugin enabled the feature.

The trunk ZIP should always be updated, unless it's being used as the stable tag.

In 11238:

Plugin Directory: When release confirmations are enabled, always build the trunk plugin-name.zip zip.

When release confirmations are enabled, trunk can never be set as the stable tag, so it's always safe to build the trunk zip.

There's still a limitation here - If a commit introduces a new stable release AND modifies trunk in the same commit, the trunk ZIP won't be updated until the release is confirmed.
It'd be nice to still rebuild the ZIP in that case, so a follow up change may still be required.
