It would be awesome if WP beta & RC releases/tags would also be available on https://github.com/WordPress/WordPress

My first inclination is that this may be more of an issue to raise on Meta Trac -- https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/ -- which tends to focus on the tooling /around/ the core software. But it also gets fewer eyes on it than here so 🤷🏽‍♂️

As @georgestephanis mentioned, this is more a meta ask, but I'm curious as to what problem this would solve that grabbing the latest master build wouldn't cover?

https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/3245 looks like it might provide some leverage in the direction you are seeking, although not directly github related, it does investigate the idea of providing different update channels and is a likely starting point.

Latest master may be anything in between (= reporting bugs is harder, since the issue might be due to an issue created after e.g. Beta 1 was released, which is what I am currently testing) releases.

Additionally, WP may have any "build" tasks that run for a release (beta, RC,...) which may not be present in master.

Please consider adding pre-release tags to the source repos as well.

Thank you
