I'm wondering if it is possibly to build pre-release tags using only a setup.cfg file? From https://setuptools.readthedocs.io/en/latest/userguide/distribution.html#tagg... it seems like this is possible via setup.py, but I was unable to find anything related to setup.cfg.
Possibly this can be configured using the --config-setting flag but I have been unable to get this to work or find any documentation on it. Ideally I would be able to pass a string so I can build a dev version for testing uploads to Test PyPI, e.g. "0.0.1devHASH"
I'm probably misunderstanding your question, but typically I've seen something like PBR or Setuptools-SCM used to automatically calculate the version at dist build time (including inferring something based on the number of commits on the branch since the last tag, embedding abbreviated Git commit IDs, or whatever).
