If one shouldn't use it as a remote repo and one shouldn't release to it 
then perhaps it shouldn't be named 'repo' anymore. It only confuses people.

At the moment we (Cocoon) decided to 'stage' our release to 
people.a.o:~jheymans/staging-repo. After testing we 'mv' the files to 
ibiblio-rsync. Not an ideal situation but i guess there aren't really 
any alternatives.

It's not so much that we wouldn't get a chance to review, it's more that 
we are afraid that the sync cronjob kicks in during a release execution 
and publishes only half or parts of the released artifacts.
