    When I create a new project from the HDRP template, I'm greeted with this dialog before the editor window even shows up:

    Is this supposed to happen?
    It never happened in previous versions.
    Unity 2020.1.0a25

    The HDRP template uses an older version of HDRP and in the newer versions, changes were made to the material system. 2020.1 isn't out yet so it doesn't have the updated HDRP template and currently uses the one for 2019.3 which is 7.x.x. This doesn't work with the current version of 2020.1 beta so creating a new HDRP project with 2020.1 triggers the package manager to download the correct version of HDRP released for 2020.1 (8.x.x). Which is why you get this dialog before opening the project.

    What does it have to do with being out?
    The project template ships with the Unity version.
    In this case 2020.1.0b4 ships with an out of date project template.

    The upgraders are not are not updated. So it has everything to do with it. 2020.1 is a beta it is not intended for production, for the very reasons you've stumbled on I expect.

    The idea of a beta is it's actually still being made. So you'll encounter things not made yet, so it seems to make sense to me. You reporting this information here is great, and the feedback expected from participating so thank you.

    So yeah, seems part the course for an alpha or beta.

    If you think something else is up please post a bug report number, Unity *loves* these during beta :)

    A project template is created on/for a verified version of HDR/URP for a released version of the editor. Since both HDRP 8.x.x and the 2020.1 version of the editor is currently in development at the same time, you can't expect an up to date project template with work in progress versions of both.

    So once the team finishes adding the new features, they make a locked version that doesn't get any more features just bug fixes. This is from QA or reported issues. That locked version then has to go through testing for that version of the editor and if it passes QA then it can be made into a verified package and a project template for the editor upon release.

    So creating a new project using an alpha or beta version of the editor, you will be using the previous HDRP/URP Project Template.
