So far, we haven't integrated this into Travis-CI yet (and we only upload our stable releases currently). I'd probably defer that task to @lukas-w once we have the portable installation working properly.
The primary purpose of this PR is to make the AppImage available to developers to create and test to get the kinks with the software worked out.
Those interested (which tend to be very few) would compile the code, like any other feature. The temporary upload is a nice feature. I generally do something similar but manually when I need testers and which doesn't add additional logic to Travis-CI that would later have to be pulled out just prior to merge.
We should consider uploading all PRs to a temporary location as you've suggested. It'll be a welcome addition as we ramp up for nightly builds.
