The release notes for python 2.6b2 at
http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.6/ identify the release as an
alpha release.  I'm not sure, but the disclaimer regarding who should
use it might need changing too.

alpha != beta

The same issue applies to 3.0b2.  The release is identified as alpha. 
Also, there's a bit about who the alphas are aimed at (developers), but
nothing about the role of the betas.

The web pages seem to have been updated to correctly describe 
the releases (now, they're release candidates).  Thanks for your report!
