There is quite a bit of confusion around what playground projects are
able to do vs. what reviewed projects are able to do unfortunately.

to make alpha/beta releases, and cannot have any stable releases.
For this reason, they also don't have stable translations.

This does mean however that the difference between playground and
reviewed software is very small and in practice playground projects
have essentially been acting as fully fledged projects (making
releases that distributions are packaging and delivering in their main
repositories, etc)

Since we've moved to Git the story of playground has always been a bit
confusing to be honest, as we now have personal repositories as a
first step, then playground, then review and finally self-released /
release-service / plasma / frameworks.

With the upcoming move to Gitlab and with personal repositories now
having greater prominence this is a topic i'd definitely like to
revisit (but that is a whole different topic/discussion, and should be
in it's own email thread)
