6.3-RC1: different port/package versions

I'm trying out 6.3-RC1, but had some problems with getting different
(and incompatible) versions of packages and ports.

When installing packages with sysinstall via FTP, i get older versions
compared to using pkg_add -r.  The latter (correctly) takes the
packages from the packages-6.3-release directory, but sysinstall seems
to take the (older) in packages-6-stable.  In the sysinstall options,
setting "Release Name" to 6.3-RELEASE only results in that it says
that the directory does not exist on the FTP server.

Is this expected behaviour?
