It might be convenient to have "current" branches in each ET repository to point to the latest release. This way, download instructions will not need to be updated whenever there is a new release (see
#1103). In some situations, it is important which release is referred to. In others, it is not. The branch would be repointed (this would not be a fast-forward) at each release. I don't know how this would work for subversion repositories.
