Working on the Qt Project may have affected your instincts (we have inhibitions baked into the process because of long-term API support, we don’t have quite the right solution for hosting experimental git repos, and in the past we have been afraid to open-source too much), but in actual normal open source development I think “release early, release often” is still a good mantra.  If it’s just an experiment, it won't need a fixed API just yet, right?

Otherwise someone else who is interested in doing similar things is going to either waste time redoing your work, or else feel that it’s better to wait - which may also be a waste of time and especially energy.
