Might I suggest, create
as an index to obsolete release pages,
as a symlink to the present release page,

The idea being, people would have a single non-changing point of
reference for the newest tags, "release.cgi". Something seems inherently
wrong with requiring users to read and follow
the current link to the present release page (which may have been
replaced like so they
can find a current description.
