I don't see, how this distinction is relevant to my request to have periodic 
(semi-)stable releases of ffmpeg available for download.

Both Cinerella and Linux kernel have releases.

Whether ffmpeg is a project or a product, there need to be releases of it to 
facilitate porting and to make it easier for applications (products?) to rely 
on the already built/installed version instead of bundling their own.

Thanks for your time,
