I have updated to the FAQ to include a line about not being able to ask about pre-release and beta software.
and it is not about ...
- pre-release or beta software requiring a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) to use
Lion and iOS 5 are due to be released, but still not, and the number of questions has gone up recently. There was a question recently where a couple of users expressed disappointment in not being able to ask Lion questions, and their comments got a few upvotes. We have been closing beta-related questions for a while, and we have never allowed discussion on installing Apple software on non-Apple hardware, so I don't this as really being a big deal to add.
Please let me know if the language is okay or if it needs to be made clearer. Either way, I feel that the beta policy needs to be made clear, and I would be interested to hear any objections to adding this as well.
