When implementing this, it would be nice to take also into account the
following feature request for Devhelp, to download the latest versions
of the API references directly in Devhelp (something that I would like
to implement in the future, I don't know when):
"Have the latest stable/unstable GNOME API references"

I think the need for Devhelp is similar to the need for
developer.gnome.org: storing somewhere on gnome.org a list of tarballs
with the docs, alongside maybe an XML/JSON/whatever file listing the
tarballs with some additional info. Then library-web or Devhelp can
download the XML file, then download the new tarballs, andthen do its
