My bot wants to find the version number somewhere with a regex OR find a
file/URL that exists that uses the version number. The tag names are
(unfortunately) not the version numbers!

So, the above URLs are fine for human consumption but there's nothing on them
that says those pages and files are "7.66.0" so my bot can't see this.

If you'd use tag names that match the version strings, it would be much easier
for me, for example.

I don't know what users of this package might want.

They do, but release archives are *generated* from the files in the repository
with the tag, and 'maketgz' that makes the release will update a few files
when doing so.

You can fake the same thing by:
  $ git checkout [tag]
  $ ./maketgz [version] only
  $ make

The key being the "only" keyword there which makes maketgz only update files
for the given version and not actually go all the way and produce a release

The release builds are source code only!
