interesting!  I didn't knew that...  Then maybe creating a tarball for 
the "maint" branch and naming it with the date (or the sha), and then 
making it available on the "Download" page would be a more easy thing to do?

How "far" or different is the master branch from the maint branch right 
now?  I see 3f7bb31 
in maint but it is not clear (in bitbucket) if it is in master...?

Yep, but isn't Petsc master far away from maint?



ps: there is a typo here at the bottom 

"The nightly tarball ...  the doumentation built. ..."
