I agree. For httpd releases, they usually appear under:

<http://httpd.apache.org/dev/dist/>

Then, when they are official, they go to:

<http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd/>

For SVN, perhaps:

<http://subversion.tigris.org/pre-release/>

But, I don't know how much control CES gives us to add things under the name
space. I'd prefer that any place doesn't require a committer to put up the
space: i.e. it should somehow be a part of the SVN infrastructure.

I would prefer that any list would be a public list. Doing this on a private
list is something I'd really prefer to avoid: the release process should be
transparent to everyone. I'd prefer to get as much feedback during this
'pre-release' time period as possible. If it's a dud, we would like to know
before we send the public announcement. =)

FWIW, httpd releases seeking approval go to dev@httpd, current-testers@httpd,
and stable-testers@httpd. Any beta releases only go to current-testers@httpd.
However, I think a new mailing list might be overkill for svn. -- justin
