Seconded. Without testing we can never know. R Core does their part.

I provided weekly Debian binaries. One each for the two alphas releases, for
the beta release, for the release candidate.  It is easy to use these, for
example in a Docker container.

It is also easy to use this on a normal machine as they are standard (Debian)
packages: install, try some tests, uninstall, revert to previous version by
installing that.
