One more somewhat more constructive note:
Oracle have been naming their VirtualBox packages such that they
included the minor version in the NAME.
So the package name would be openvpn-2.3 or openvpn-2.4 for us, which
creates redundancy as the actual version is added (openvpn-2.3-2.3.12),
but it prevents moving users between release branches.

Alpha/beta releases and perhaps the early release candidates should
still also be marked in a separate "unstable" 'distribution'.
