We make a change like CL 193477 every 6 months. It's usually a one line diff, but it still needs to be remembered, made, reviewed, and deployed each time.

Maybe it's time we automate it to reduce the amount of manual work to be done for each release.

By now, we have an endpoint MaintnerServiceClient.ListGoReleases that we can use to do this more easily. E.g.:

$ go run list-releases
major:1 minor:13 [...]
major:1 minor:12 [...]

We don't really even need to make an RPC.

It already reads from the datastore first and then uses that map to filter. We could just encode the policy into the dashboard instead (last two releases) and not list out what the last two releases are. We have the various branch/version parsing code now too, which makes it easier.
