Are you asking about the order difference? I did fix that when I added
binary (making Stable first on .txt as it was on .html), but it broke
distrowatch's listings so I changed it back and don't want to make other
changes that will break other scrapers.

I would not mind adding stable-rc except that it's only actually formally
"there" half the time; the other half it's actually behind stable. Which
means if it's on the list people already have to understand our release
process to know what it means and which to look at. I would not want the
list to keep adding/removing it because it could break scrapers.
We have kept a reliable once-a-month stable release for a long time now; I
think we're already ahead of most distros there in not making people wait
for things. Stable does not get too stale and versions in test are almost
always right around the corner.
