Ok, I just saw that weasel closed it as a wontfix - the same moment as

Maybe explaining my use case/motivation will make it more clear why
this is not about changing the sources.list once a year.
I wrote an ansible role  where the user can opt-in for alpha
releases by setting a boolean. So this is already a user decision.
By taking the user's decision into account I generate the appropriate
sources.list entry, but if the sources.list entry for alpha releases
is not static this will break over time.
I could do some "lets find out current stable and do stableversion +
1" but that will also break because currently the latest stable is
0.2.6.6 but there is no such repo as
Generally speaking it would just be a lot cleaner on my side if there
would be such a static place to go for alpha releases.
