I've answered to other question that "as GitHub already provides it
(compressed exports) on the tags page
(https://github.com/mono/mono/tags) it is not needed to do (source) releases at
>From there you can see many tags (although some mis-versioning is present).
Tags for the 3.0 series (which is installed with Xamarin Studio in
MacOSX) are available. For example, the latest seems to be
https://github.com/mono/mono/archive/mono-3.10.tar.gz that seems by
its date to be the version following 3.0.9.
As for stability, I guess that tagged versions should be considered
reliable enough, but testing for what you need is the only way to be
Hope it helps,
