Good to know they actually test the programs. It's probably up to
which reviewer you get, but I've seen some shoddy programs out in the
wild on iPhone. Just be thankful for a free, unexpected quality
testing from them!

You might just try hiding the name of the repository in general from
users. It's not like they really need to know about it. Or you could
do string replaces in repository names... or just hide any
repositories that say "Beta," since you don't want your app to choke
on possibly beta modules and endanger it passing Apple's muster. ;)
Since the user has no ability to update or debug from the iPhone
anyway, they probably shouldn't be using the Beta repository. Maybe
leave a flag in so you can build your developer versions with it
enabled and test on the simulator/your phone?

I would suggest work from your 1.0 branch for now, so you don't
accidentally introduce possibly more bugs. Any bugs you do find, you
can port to your 1.1 work with a patch, hopefully! Do what you need
to get a version released, so people like me who are salivating can
start playing with it, and then be all giddy when we see updates!
