Where to post an experimental package? (java-1.7.0-openjdk)

On May 21, Sun plans on releasing a preview of JDK7[1]. We (the OpenJDK 
team) would like to create a java-1.7.0-openjdk package for experimental 
and testing purposes. A few options were we create the fedora rpms and 
submit them to rpmfusion (or similar), host them on a my personal fedora 
page, or get the package into Fedora.

I am wondering what some other acceptable options are. I am not keen on 
getting this package pushed into Fedora since java-1.6.0-openjdk already 
exists, and jdk7 will not be stable until sometime after Feb 2010[1].
