Nightly Builds for Feature Plugins

Notion: All feature plugins should be present in the plugin repository, kept up-to-date, and kept free of testing blockers. Delivering in-development interfaces to beta testers via WP’s built-in update mechanism is good ecosystem dogfooding.

With the Beta Tester plugin, I am able to update my sites to the latest nightly build of core WordPress automatically. Feature Plugins should endeavour to do the same. A script for deploying from git to the .org plugin repository exists and seems a good place to start.

While the tooling is worked out, I’d like to commit to making weekly releases of feature plugins, at the least.
