Well, I don't think that we should roll releases from the development
track until it's taken shape and we're looking for a broader set of
testers prior to going to a release candidate.

Basically, once we declare a 1.0 release, I don't see a need to roll a
dev tarball for quite some time (at the very least, a few months).
