This is taken from our spec:
# Pre-release RPM's should not be put up on the public ftp.postgresql.org server
# -- only test releases or full releases should be.

So thinking that:

* Beta and RC RPMs are used only by testers
* We use the beta and RC steps to build the new RPM sets, so that means 
that actually they are not production quality looking from the RPM 
perspective.

That's why I put them to developer site.

Another reason was that gunduz.org was unavailable for 2 months (and 
putting the PGDG RPMs to my site does not sound good).

I agree with that part about gunduz.org. But I think it'd be better to
just have a separate subdirectory for beta/rc:s on the ftp site. There
is already a http://www.postgresql.org/ftp/binary/v8.1beta/ which has
the win32 beta/rc files, so I suggest adding required dirs and put the
RPMs there.
