 External applications such as [https://github.com/Whonix/tb-updater tb-
 updater] and torbrowser-downloader parse, depend on
 RecommendedTBBVersions] being up to date.

 {{{7.5.6}}} was [https://blog.torproject.org/tor-browser-756-released-
 released] June 26, 2018.

 Yet on August 18, 2018 {{{7.5.5}}} was still included in
 RecommendedTBBVersions. Why? Forgotten or is there a policy to it?

 Could you please kindly explain the policy on when old versions are
 removed from RecommendedTBBVersions?

 I am asking, so ​tb-updater parsing code can be updated accordingly. (At
 the moment it's "suggest the lowest version number among them otherwise it
 might be an alpha/beta version".)
