As long as we wait for offical releases of the tarballs, I do not think it
applies to us. There would be no way for us to really shake out JavaHL
without having a release. As it is, I have found a number of show
stoppers before 1.2 and 1.3 by getting us up to date quickly.

I do not plan on putting anything special in the URL as I intend for it to
become the new URL. I am only going to announce the release on the
mailing list so that only people that are aware of the details will be
able to find the install. Once 1.3 is official, I will update the old URL
so that people on auto updates see the new release. Subsequent updates
will come from the new URL automatically.

TortoiseSVN has been putting out nightly releases since before the first
RC1 was made.

Also, Subclipse is not even 1.0, so there is a certain aspect of
"beta-ness" to all of our releases.
