Symbolic refs work in code snapshot links for git repositories, e.g. http://sourceforge.net/p/allura/git/ci/master/tarball, but not for Hg or SVN. They appear to partially work, in that a snapshot file is generated, but either the URL or the file name end up using the non-symbolic commit ID.
All three should probably be normalized to use the non-symbolic commit ID so that caching works properly (the code for "master" will change, so the cached allura-git-master.tar.gz file will be out of date), probably by making http://sourceforge.net/p/allura/git/ci/master/tarball redirect to the non-symbolic URL in case there is a push while waiting for the file to be complete.
