Yes. But make sure, that you mark up the experimental/unstable status of the project in the documentation. The best place to do this is in the package.xml in the <state>-tag. The values for this tag are:

alpha
early stages of development, all things could change (API, behavoir) without notice, expect lots of bugs

beta
API should normally not change, usable software, expect bugs

devel
a release for other developers who want early access to test and give feedback, code quality may vary from pre-alpha to stable

stable
the software has a fixed API, it has undergone tests, and documentation exists. This release is a recommended release for use in production environments.

snapshot
a CVS snapshot from a certain date
