Many of the packages are built at before they are pushed to the repositories.

Is it possible to get the output debs of these builds?

(If not I'll probably file an enhancement request.)

According to the release architecture here:

The Hudson builds are in the release pipeline; the last stage of which before being released publicly is:

EDIT by kwc: ros-shadow-fixed may not have a completed set of packages, so it's use is not recommended. If you do fetch from ros-shadow-fixed, you will have to update your entire set of ros-* debs at once as the debians are version-locked for binary compatibility.

caveat emptor: they are held there before going public for a reason. You may find yourself with incomplete or broken packages if you regularly use that repository.

Is it in fact always the latest from the build farm though?

I recommend that you read if you're interested in the definition of what is contained there.
