I was making the assumption that keeping tracks of beta is useless for
end-users. They would rather take full version, either prior or
posterior to those betas (if available), and the value of those beta
tags is limited to the release cycle.
To my opinion, this case was not useful. The initial intent was to clean
stuff on the GIT history.
