Get off your native-speaker high horse.  I understood what he meant

Here are the first two sentences:
Please download one of the latest releases in order to get an API-stable
version of cairo. You'll need both the cairo and pixman packages.

See In-Progress Development (below) for details on getting and building
the latest pre-release source code if that's what you're looking for.

Now to me, that reads as a choice between API-stable or misc.

Anyway, maybe you could manage to decipher the cryptic tomes of and work out the correct mailing
list to troll about Cairo? Hint: Not this one.
