starting the test phase for 1.7

Should we start building 1.7 binaries and ask people to test them?
We might call it beta testing or even "early access builds" or somesuch.
I don't really care about the name.

But there seems to be increased interest in 1.7 among our user base.
TortoiseSVN is already providing binaries based on trunk code and we've
already received useful feedback because of this.

Note that this is entirely independent of creating a 1.7.x branch.
I think that should still wait until we consider trunk to be RC quality.
The overhead of using 1.7.x/STATUS is too much of a burden at this point.

I could try to create binaries for OpenSUSE (on the opensuse buildservice)
and Ubuntu (in a ppa).

Related documention would of course contain warnings about using these
binaries on production data. The idea is to make it easier for people
to run 1.7 since we've rarely received test reports for our source code
beta releases in the past.

Would anyone be interested in helping out with creating binaries
for other systems?
