.0 is clear indication that's GA tarball, but to make it clear you can
update Launchpad series summary
to include the link to

Count me confused, when I saw Ironic 4.2.2 announcement and then 4.2.1
as latest in Launchpad.
I propose to remove https://launchpad.net/ironic/+milestone/4.2.1 - it
has no release notes and only one minor bug, so that's not much
information loss and cuts this confusing corner case.
For historical purposes, tarball is still available at
http://tarballs.openstack.org/ironic/ironic-4.2.1.tar.gz. This should
be the only non-reno Liberty release, for other projects it would be
super nice if release team could bulk add link
in all Liberty series summaries in Launchpad.
