Yay, excellent!

So we can make those three-monthly release feeds we're planning to start in
december by essentially pinning the versions of a 'latest' build. (They won't
really be "stable" releases, just pinned ones.)

We could theoretically also just copy the 'latest' binaries on a given day to a
different download folder without maintaining OBS builds ... but probably
better to do actual builds instead for easier "backport" releasing if needed.

We'll probably do a release tagging round in all repositories for each such
cycle, 4 times a year, and are free to do more release tags in-between to make
'latest' benefit from fixes or features.
