+1, if there is enough space on people.a.o (and there seems to be).

What I have seen done is that release managers put up the pre-approved 
level on their private website on people.a.o.  I don't really care where 
we put it, as long as we don't link to it from anywhere.  There's no 
point in putting up artificial boundaries as the source code is freely 
available, just so nobody other than incubator folks are tempted to look 
for it.
