Right now Area51 shows the steps of define, commit and beta. How about we break up the beta section into private beta and public beta? That way we don't have to click on them and try to login to find out what state they're in.


Area 51 now does a better job of indicating which is which, the text will be "beta" (not yet reached), "private beta", "public beta"

For those not already aware: <joke>

You could use this simple function:

public bool isPublic(Site s) {
    return s.daysInBeta() > 7;

That should give you whether or not a site is private or public. (This hasn't been compiled or tested)


But seriously, it's not that hard to tell based on the age of a beta site.
