Comment (by dd32):

 > The idea is to allow Beta Tester users to stay on a beta/RC release and
 not get autoupdated to the nightly. Updates would only show when there is
 a new beta/RC release.

 While I have wanted that feature forever, I think it should be handled
 slightly differently:
  - Nightly updates once >= Beta1
  - Nightly updates once >= RC1

 There can be significant bugs fixed between Beta's and RC's and getting
 those updates to those users ASAP will both improve their experience of
 the Beta/RC and also reduce the number of duplicate bugs being reported
 ("Ah yes, that's the 20th ticket this week, it'll be fixed in Beta2 which
 is delayed another week while we fix all these other bugs" - a scenario
 that shouldn't happen, but if it does, isn't great to the end-user.
