No, that's not what I meant at all. Stop reading between the lines
:-). I like your efforts to bring early builds to a wider (developer /
expert / ...) audience. I think it's a good thing.

I was just trying to say that we've already had "1.10.0-dev" in our
own "version tag" (ever since branching 1.9.x), but that we've never
had to think about this because we weren't distributing it. You've put
us in a new situation, but that's not a bad thing :-). How to name the
binary package that you're putting up for download ... without
creating confusion.
