If there's a version tag, it's stable as far as we know. If the
package maintainer believes there's an issue, they tell Norbert, who
holds back on any release until it's resolved. Some package
maintainers keep exceptionally unstable packages in the unsupported
tree (eg, Ville Skyttä's vc sync). The prerelease cycle is mostly
intended to catch packaging bugs, not Lisp code bugs.
If you want to avoid the pre-releases, then M-x list-packages will tell
you current recommended version as long as you have no pre-release
archives in the list of download hosts.
