I do not have many bandwith for http, but I can provide a spare rsync server 
easilly, and I can ensure a sync very often (4 time per hour for example).

> 1. set up an apache virtual host as beta.centos.or

This is possible, but I'll have probably to restart my apache, which is not 
acceptable because the count long iso download always pending on the server.

> 2. set up rsync for beta.cenros.org with targets we specify

Will this target change for next beta ? how many rsync per day ? Why do you 
not push beta on classic tree ?
I am usually ready to help, but I can't change my config for all distribution 
like this, otherwise, I can work only the mirrors (I rsync mandriva, centos, 
scientific, devil...), for some tree, I am often the first and sometimes the 
only one to report errors.

So if you can ensure me I'll have to setup this only one time for all, why

My server is already registered for a projet I am working on 
(http://mmm.zarb.org/ if interested)

I rsync mandriva 4 time per hour (400GB), so this is not a problem

> 4. agree to remove the beta stuff when the beta test is over

And having to setup it again for next beta ? Why not keeping this tree for the 
devel tree, moving often, as mandriva have devel/cooker ?
