There are still regular checkins... This bugs our dev :-)

So if we were to choose a specific Github commit, we should be ok. The
blessed release also gives someone paranoid enough about this reassurance
that that release is stable enough to go with it.

Fair enough, I understand. I've had a moan at a certain distribution's
folks today about this.

Ok... I'll suggest to our dev that we pick a commit and release that.
