I would expect that many real (as opposed to automated )users of raisin
would want some easy way to build e.g. Xen 4.6 along with all the
versions of the various components which were tested as part of that
release. e.g. something equivalent to what was in the release tarball.

Likewise for the development version I'd expect that they would want
some way to ask for something which had undergone some minimal testing
rather than the very most bleeding edge stuff, similar to choosing
xen.git#master rather than xen.git#staging.

Having to go and get that from a separate tree, or worse to construct
that config file themselves, would be a usability barrier to those users
