The version being rolled is any version we want to roll, probably but
not necessarily a supported version (it's not forbidden to use this tool
to roll an unsupported version), and certainly not necessarily the
currently recommended version.

The set of versions currently available for download is one of the
outputs that we are possibly intending to change during the release
process (depending on what sort of release it is, or maybe it's a test
roll and not a release at all). One of the things release.py does is
help us generate the 'downloads' page.

The definition of what is the currently "recommended" release is an
input to the "release.py" part of the release management process.

What am I missing?
