Might I suggest, create
as an index to obsolete release pages,
as a symlink to the present release page,

The idea being, people would have a single non-changing point of
reference for the newest tags, "release.cgi". Something seems inherently
wrong with requiring users to read http://dragonflybsd.org/ and follow
the current link to the present release page (which may have been
replaced like http://www.dragonflybsd.org/main/release1_0.cgi) so they
can find a current description.
