https://check.torproject.org/RecommendedTBBVersions works as is. Please
consider documenting and finalizing the version format. TorButton uses
it, torbrowser-launcher uses it, Whonix's Tor Browser updater uses it.
Perhaps other scripts are using it as well, such as Fedora's TBB
packaging? Please don't break it! I guess these projects are better off
not implementing an rss parser.

Also RecommendedTBBVersions has a feature to mark multiple versions as
still valid. For example, revently it included "3.5.0-Linux" and
"3.5.1-Linux" at the same time for a while.

Why not better implement and rss feed for
? New versions are announced there anyway. And use of the "tbb" tag is
constant. Maybe there already is an rss link and I don't see it?
