Sure, but I feel that the beta tag are not considered a "dumb-straight from
git" for Qt users. They expect some minimal quality for a build to be
considered a beta.
I often report bugs, but I'm still using alpha because this bug is a major

completely untestable to users of a major paradigm (QtQuick). It also
affect multiple OS.
QtCreator is also impacted by this, but apparently the builds are made with
Maybe others developers would feel the same, and simply reject the beta.
Resulting in less hands to test the release and consequently less quality
in the release ?
