Unstable discontinued, how will new PM versions be tested?

I'm confused by Moonchild's post here. If the unstable version of Pale Moon is no longer available, how will new versions of PM be real-world tested? Or did I misunderstand that post?

There will still be dev versions in every day use. It just won't be published in this way.

Was there a particular reason for this change (organisation issues, update issues, etc) or not?

Yes there was. I'm not likely to do things without reason.

Is it possible for a "non-dev" to test the unstable builds? If so, how, please?

No it's not possible. We don't publish unstables anymore.
