CollabNet did not post anything. In an open-source project (mine), on a
hosting site operated by CollabNet, I posted my Windows binaries in a
listing labelled "Development Builds" just as I have been doing from trunk
for months. This is not different than TortoiseSVN, Subclipse or AnkhSVN
which all post nightly builds so people can try our software. I did not
post the source tarball, I posted my build of the Windows binaries and I
will likely continue to do so as the branch progresses towards release.

I made no special announcement about this, just as I have not for any of the
other updates to the binaries I have made in the last several months. After
building beta1 and running the performance benchmarks I simply posted the
binaries for others to try them. I am not even the one that added a link to
these binaries from the Subversion website.

That said, I do encourage Windows users to download the binaries and
continue to provide us feedback. There are no known show-stopper bugs in
beta1, feel free to use at your own discretion.
