Why do you think that?  It’s one possibility, sure, but there are others.
I haven’t done the research yet to know which option makes sense here.

Meaning the GUB build of the next version that wouldn’t even exist yet?

If I were to upload it, I’d make sure there was a link of some sort to it.
Otherwise what’s the point?

I don’t see how this follows from anything I’ve said...

(Small quibble: ideally, this will soon be the LilyPond project’s CI site,
not ‘mine’.  I really don’t want to be the sole person in charge of this.)

What do you mean by “next stable version”?

You’re most welcome!  Interesting point about multiple versions; some
package managers support that use case and some do not.  But .app bundles
always trivially support it.
