I, for one, do use alpha tarballs on my dev machines (when working on
apps that use PostgreSQL). It gives me a concrete schedule to update
them that's not too frequent and I can tell whether they need updating
just by glancing at the version string.
If I was using git, I'd probably have some machines lagging hopelessly
behind and always confused about which version is which.
I also maintain an Arch Linux community package for testing versions,
that has at least one other user:
But it's probably not worth releasing alphas for us two alone. :)
