Both the api and the releases page work off of git tags; here the assumption is that tags
are "only" used to tag releases.

to this URL will work so long as someone rewrites code/common/mh_release.pl. See below
for my comments on this idea.
Nice, thanks again.

Using the tags API URL should make this rather easy. I'll volunteer to modify the

mh_version.pl file but I would like to understand the rules around tag usage and naming.
It would be good if we had some documented rules for identifying the latest release. I
suspect we will need more criteria than simply picking the top most tag; top most is most
recent but will that always be the latest and will top most even always be a release? How
do you see us using tags over the life of the project? What rules do you think are
appropriate for a piece of code to unambiguously find the latest release?
