For direct links to a specific version of MyBB:
However the link you have above for "latest" refers at all times to the 
latest "Stable" release.
We've just moved all development over to git (on github) so you can 
always download any exact revision from there. Of course, you're using 
MyBB in a production environment, so you really just need the latest 
stable link above to always stay up to date with the latest stable.

Out of curiosity, why are you packaging it as an RPM?

Unfortunately, I have no control over the translations, nor any 
experience with them, and really the links to the MyBB versions on the 
above wiki page are in the same style. Also the translations only 
translate the forum's built in text & buttons. Not the text in the 
posts. Since this is an "English" mailing list, doesn't it make sense to 
keep the forum in English too?

Anyways, I hope to have the plugin for the mailing list integration at 
least as a beta in 2-3 weeks. It'll take that long because I have two 
paid projects ahead of it right now.
