Browsing through the tickets posted I see a couple
requesting that addon authors are given a means to control
which of the files mirrored on Curse (release and beta packages only)
will be set as the default download.
It seems that currently you are "forced" to tag a file as "release"
to make it the default download if there's a previously tagged release
(no matter how older).
I'm just inquiring if there's been some change to that I'm missing,
(spent quite some time navigating through every project link I could find)
or in any case if it's considered for the future.
Out of curiosity the current state of affairs is due to techniqual
limitations/convenience... or a way to discourage perpetual betas?
