There's a class of users between active developers/QA folk and people
who only use GUI package managers who are apt to go to a download site
looking for RPM's.

That said, I think a succinct README ("This is pre-release code, there
be goblins here") in the right directory that Apache auto-displays for
index listings would be sufficient to warn off those users.  Otherwise,
_somebody_ is going to say, "oh, cool, 12 is out, I missed that."
