That is good for (re-)running the test suites. But I am still wondering
about re-running the builds as we often only need to rebundle things.
But that should not necessarily trigger a whole rebuild. Especially not
if we need to get new bundles out urgently and would need to wait on
having this rebuild finished before.

Or is this (re-)running builds feature just an orthogonal feature
unrelated to actual releases? So, maybe I did not filly understand what
you had in mind with "This versions file could be also used by an other
script to trigger new builds." then.
