Pyroh [1] filed a deletion request for gcc-snapshot [2]:

The former maintainer stated in the comments that this was being
orphaned in favor of gcc-git, which arguably makes this packages
existence unneeded.

Here (http://gcc.gnu.org/snapshots.html) users are recommended to use
VCS as "given snapshot may generate incorrect code or even fail to
build." This is obviously the same for VCS packages, but there is no
implication of stability with those, while a snapshot might be
interpreted that way.
