Bug Description


for automatted tools of downloading the latest iso image for Ubuntu it would be quite usefull and convenient, if the list in /usr/share/distro-info/ubuntu.csv would contain the minor release number, e.g.

not just 18.04 for bionic beaver, but 18.04.4 (maybe .4 as a separate column), because that's what's needed to find the URL of the iso image straigth forward and not just by trial or parsing web pages.

I don't see this being fixed in distro-info-data but think this is something we could / should workaround in dl-ubuntu-test-iso.
