Release the beta to everyone

Why not just let everyone use this?  Why limit the beta testers?  With an open beta testing, you're more likely to get all the bugs fixed.  It'll never get released at this pace.

I think Wes has *plenty* of beta testers at the moment...

Also, the problem with releasing a beta like this globally is that it will inevitably wind up on some obscure server, where people will download it instead of the latest version, and the bugfest will run rampant.

Just be patient.  Once the majority of the bugs are squished, I'm sure Wes will set the mod loose on the world.   :)
