Do not upload dev releases at PyPI

This was originally posted on blogger here.

In my last blog post I mentioned that the plan was to release the django-uni-form 0.8.0 final in about six days. To my chagrin I was pointed at Tarek Ziade's post about not publishing beta releases on PyPI. So the django-uni-form team has now pushed up the 0.8.0 release of the library today, and removed the BETA from discovery via the web or pip.

Lesson learned: Until future notice from the distutils2 effort led by Tarek, if you are running a project that has any Stable releases, don't use PyPI to publish non-final versions.
