official release makes it sound like the other builds are not
official, which is the wrong distinction i'm trying to avoid. My
experience reading the forums/irc/lists is that nontechnical people do
not make the connection between "release" and "thing we specifically
released as a specific thing, as opposed to an autobuild", and thus a
term that relies on "release" meaning something to people is not
ideal. Any build we offer for download looks like a release to them :)
