It's just that Monticello doesn't support this. The Monticello
filename hacks have to stop.  For example the filename hacks of
Chronos wreck havoc on the Monticello Browser. An other example my
Monticello marks Seaside2.8a1 as if there was a new version that I
haven't loaded which isn't the case. Additionally they make the
Seaside repository even more crowded.

We need metadata for this and it needs to be simple to use otherwise
everyone marks their versions as unstable and nothing is gained. Or a
section on the yet to be built Seaside webpage so that people don't
have to access the (very confusing) repository anymore.

So my point on this is if you want something to happen in this area is
be part of the solution and don't just write mails.
