 > Is this a request to make use of GitHub `Releases`, or just to have
 Beta/RCs available as tags?

 To Clarify, if it's just to make Beta/RCs available as tags via GitHub,
 then we can throw this back to the Core Team and it's up to them to add
 tagging Beta/RC releases in SVN to the release documentation (ie. on
 https://develop.svn.wordpress.org/ which will then be reflected in
 https://core.svn.wordpress.org/, which then they would both be reflected
 onto git://{develop,core}.git.wordpress.org/ and ultimately in
 https://github.com/WordPress/{wordpress,wordpress-develop}/). There'd be
 some work that needs doing on the meta side to make sure they get listed
 correctly on the w.org release archive though.

 If it's to start making use of GitHub releases, then that's a whole other
 thing and probably a lot more work than it's reasonably worth it to the
 project, since we don't use GitHub as a primary development location at
 present. It'd likely also have to be almost a manual process for someone
 with GitHub access, as while it can be automated via the GitHub API,
 there'd be some shortcomings trying to make it work with our existing
 release scripts (that are not at all git aware, and we don't store any SVN
 rev => Git revision data on w.org either)
