these are not the "official" Dev2m2 releases however, although they are in a directory that
implies otherwise.

he dev builds are fine as long as they are announced on dev@. See the
following quote from the policy.> The only people who are supposed to
know about such developer resources are individuals actively
participating in development or following the dev list and thus aware of
the conditions placed on unreleased materials.

Given that statement I would recommend against a blog post. Lets wait
and see if any others chime in on this. Though I will start a possible
post tonight after I take the kids home.
