Got the idea from kernel.org

Why not have
https://www.alpinelinux.org/releases.json

The fields in json file can be ones as seen on:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpine_Linux (right Infobox).

Also if possible
https://www.alpinelinux.org/distrowatch.json

Since there is no standard on this yet additional fields may be added.
(or is there a standard on it ?)
I think other distros should also do it.

Info here is very basic, more suitable for mirroring server scripts but not 
for aggregators/publishers.

If published in this format, maybe a script could be done for wikipedia which 
auto-updates the webpages' infobox text or atleast notifies new release.
I am not sure how it is done presently.
