What is dev.stackoverflow.com?

I just found a link to dev.meta.stackoverflow.com. I tried to login, but got a screen saying this:

This site is currently in private beta.

It is only visible to users who committed to its Area 51 site proposal ...


...at the moment.

Private betas typically last about 7 days. Please come back soon for the public beta!

(If you believe you should have access to this private beta, please email team@stackoverflow.com)

But I can't find the proposal and the private beta has lasted longer than 7 days. I know its the development server, are we even meant to be able to logon to it? I would LOVE to help beta test new features...

What is dev.stackoverflow.com?

Dev isn't really in private beta. We discourage access to our dev tier.

Why did you say "discourage" instead of "disallow"? Is it possible - although "discouraged" - to access the dev tier? – Andreas Bonini Jul 25 '10 at 23:58

@kop there's nothing really bad about it, but we just don't guarantee anything about it working, ever – Jeff Atwood Jul 26 '10 at 0:50
So how can you get access to it? – TheLQ Jul 26 '10 at 2:56
How do I get access? – kinokijuf Jan 13 '12 at 15:57
