We could certainly add some symlink(s) to the "latest" stable/released
version that is updated whenever we do a release.

What kind of naming/link is the most convenient?

Should it just be a link to the latest release dir?

Or would a direct link to the source tar ball and signature file be

Or some other scheme?

We could also have the buildbot create a "latest" or "current" from git
once all builds are green for example.

Which brings up the question, should we use "stable", "current" or
"latest" as link name, or is there a better, more standard name to use
for that? What do other projects use?
