I used to cut pre-releases for pip, and after awhile I gave up on doing them because it felt like nobody ever actually reported any issues with them anyways, and it wasn’t until we cut the final release that we started finding bugs with them. I don’t have any problem with us starting to issue them again though and seeing if we start catching issues earlier this time.
