I had a look at some other Apache projects:

cocoon:                 latest
excalibur:              current
jakarta-struts: current
lucene:                 current
jakarta-regexp: current
james:                  current
logging/log4j:  latest=1.2.12, unstable=1.3alpha7
rivet:                  current
tomcat:                 5.0.30beta = link to 5.0.30
ws-jaxme:               current

I propose the following:

unstable is a link to 0.90
0.90alpha1 is a link to 0.90
current is a link to 0.20.5

The links appear as directory names on the distribution servers and on
the web site, as Unix soft links or as empty directories with
redirection.
