Github API endpoint for latest stable tag

Hi,
is it possible to provide a Github API endpoint to fetch the latest stable tag (like https://api.github.com/repos/discourse/discourse/releases/latest)?

Lot’s of projects use it to provide a simple way to determine the tarball or zip download URL (e.g. https://api.github.com/repos/nextcloud/server/releases/latest).

Thanks and regards,
Philip

Our repo has a stable branch that can be used to checkout the source our our “stable” release channel: GitHub - discourse/discourse at stable

We don’t do that, and we even disabled the release widget from the GitHub right column because we don’t recommend using those tarballs for running Discourse. Our guidance is that users should follow our official install document instead.

Can you share why would you like us to provide this?
