it is public, however we dont want people using it widely. Which is why 
there isnt much info about it outside the centos devel lists. We dont 
want to break everyone's installs with packages that might not be 
suiteable for production.

The whole point of the testing repo is that people can test the packages 
there, and once there is enough feedback those packages move to the 
mirror.centos.org repos'.

Over the next few days - maybe week to ten days - we will work out a 
better or an alternative testing mechanism that more people would / 
should be able to use and provide feedback on. Till then I highly 
recommend sitting tight! And once there is a process plan, I shall make 
sure its put out in as many places as possible, so if you have anything 
to do with CentOS, you will hear about it.

Not sure if this answers your question, but I hope it helps
