Another point perhaps missed is that these are really release tags, not necessarily developer release stages. So, for example, say we were working on a branch with a major re-write called v4.x, we could create a ‘v4x’ branch (or whatever) and release ota updates to it. Modules subscribing to that tag would get those updates.
I guess we could address that with v3-beta, v3-alpha, v4-alpha, etc.
