Yes, I'd be pissed. Because it would be _my_ reputation that would go to pieces. Just like Linux Format reviewing alpha versions of applications as if they were final releases makes the reputation the authors go to pieces. Just grabbing unfinished stuff out of a repository and releasing it as if were the finished, final thing is unethical. If you don't understand that, you very obviously have never worked on an open source software project.
