I need a non-numeric version for continuous publishing of gettext snapshot

I wonder how users of these tarballs would be able to identify
snapshots if there is no version information.

I find that for CI tarballs a
stable URL is the more important feature.

Somewhat related:

If you're posting the tarballs to ftp.gnu.org or alpha.gnu.org ,
the upload script (build-aux/gnupload) can create symlinks,
and even provide examples of symlinking a "-latest.tar.gz" to a versioned one:
$ gnupload --help
4. Create a symbolic link foobar-latest.tar.gz -> foobar-1.0.tar.gz
   and likewise for the corresponding .sig file:
  gnupload --to ftp.gnu.org:foobar \
           --symlink foobar-1.0.tar.gz     foobar-latest.tar.gz \
                     foobar-1.0.tar.gz.sig foobar-latest.tar.gz.sig

Would that help with a stable URL for testing?
