It doesn’t have to explicitly require the alpha, it just has to include pre-releases
so stuff like >=1.2a0,<1.3 would include 1.2a0 and higher, and “less than 1.3”.
Unfortunately that’s a bit wonky still because 1.3a0 is technically < 1.3 so
it’d match too. At least until we finish implementing PEP 440.
