The URLs are not a pointer to any specific resource. They are just an
arbitrarily invented unique identifier & once released, we must never
change any URL. By convention we pick a short "product name" as the
first path component, because over time vendors have introduced new
or parallel products. Thus '/releases/' would not be future proof.

As an example, Fedora has both the traditional 'fedora' OS releases
and 'silverblue'.
