Oh yes. It was the primary opportunity for anyone to install snap-shots, 
dev builds, betas or however they were called, to test, without having 
trouble in special installing actions and/or loosing stable versions.
Many many issues were reported from users/testers working with those. Me 
(and others) always promoted working with those dev-builds, cause it was 
an easy way to find bugs relatively early, which eases fixing and helps 
preventing regressions.

Apparently, in all our enthusiasm and work, we did not yet tell each 
other enough about our backgrounds and so more.
