But the "dist" should be limited to people who are on/pay attention to
this mailing list [1].  Anything else increases the personal liability of
anyone involved in putting that tarball up on the website for download.

If putting files into dev/dist conveys the implication that you intend
for people to be *redistributing* those artifacts, then I think it 
is a mistake, and you'd be better off using people.apache.org/~foo
for putting up candidates to test.  That doesn't stop people from
redistributing candidates, but it doesn't conflate the fact that
the ASF/this PMC has done nothing to endorse them.
