Ideally I would still want to see tarballs published, even if they are
generated with a $ git describe --tags name in it.

E.g. keystone-2015.1.0-3-g1373bfa.tar.gz

keystone-stable-kilo.tar.gz -> is really bad name imho, as it's ever
changing tarball. It would be nice if that was e.g. a symlink to a
keystone-2015.1.0-3-g1373bfa.tar.gz if said snapshot is latest.

If the stable tarball snapshots had stable, ever increasing names, I
would switch to using those straight away. (Out of which $ git
describe --tags satisfies said requirement)


Pura Vida!
