It would be better to put the development version in TeXLive as a separate package—on MacOS, it comes with the TeX Live Utility which gives update notifications frequently, once a week, but one can run it more frequently by hand. Just give it a different name than from the ordinary distribution, say context-<version>.

When I used the beta, it was difficult to switch with other TeX software. So this might be better.
