I had a similar idea for Python: every two weeks, we cut a pre-release version and upload to PyPI (but only if there hasn’t been a formal release in the past week). This wouldn’t increment the version, but would just have a
suffix. This is similar to how DuckDB operates, and it nice because folks can try out new features and fixes without having to build the packages themselves. This should be completely automated and require no manual intervention (unless there is a CI failure)

I love this idea! Building a package can definitely be that extra headache that makes you decide just to wait for an official release. I'm way more likely to play with dev releases if they're already built for me 😁💡
