Does github have an rss feed or something of the latest stable bitcoin downloads?

I want to create some servers that run the latest bitcoin clients 24/7 and update them automatically whenever a new stable version is released.

github only hosts the source code and no compiled versions. you clone the source repository using git and compile it yourself. there is a feed for commits https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/commits/v0.3.24rc3.atom but not for tags, which would probably be the best way to determine a "stable" version.

precompiled binaries are hosted on sourceforge and there appears to be an rss feed: http://sourceforge.net/api/file/index/project-id/244765/mtime/desc/limit/20/rss

Well the latest source code would be great!

If I click on https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/tarball/master then I am redirected to the latest tar.gz file which is great, but it has this weird encoding on the end of the filename (click on the link above and you will see) so it would be difficult for a script to untar the filename when I don't know what it is.
