I'd like to mirror and test the latest build of http://snapshots.linaro.org/10.11-daily/linaro-headless/

Having "latest" or "current" aliases can cause traceability problems if having mirrored the files, you can't determine which actual build/release it was.
Is it possible to have an easily-parsed file /LATEST or /CURRENT which just contains the URL(s) of the latest image(s)? -- tools or scripts can trivially download those files to get the right canonical URLs for the newest images at any particular time, without having to guess.
Of course, there's no reason why you can't have alises in addition to this, for casual use.
