Something that would be very useful for us would be to lock down the
default landing page to a particular version. We've got quite a few
packages we only have the resources to support/upgrade for the long term
releases (e.g. indigo) and it's rather repetitive always having to click
back from the latest release page (where we usually put a message saying
it's not supported in this release) back to the indigo page.
