I guess it depends on how much usage you expect it to get.

If you are expecting alot of bandwidth to be used, then we could
probably put it in the ftp folder under /other/. Please don't put it
in the root of ftp though..

However, I really think unstable is the right place to put packages
that need testing though. I mean... what else will it be used for if
not for new packages to test?

What benefit does a custom folder have over unstable?
