GitLab Pages doesn't do file listings, so it's not just a matter of
enabling the thing in nginx, but we'd have to generate a listing
index.html as part of our static site generation.

To be honest, I think you're looking in the wrong place though. Every
release of both Wayland and Weston always has a tag in git, and git
tags are only ever used for releases. So if you want to find out more,
just run `git tag -l` on each of the two repositories (or `git
ls-remote --tags
https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/wayland/(wayland|weston).git`) and have
all the information you need?
