Does that override update_url? Or does the updater use the latest
version found in either location? I'm unclear on the exact precedence
of these repos.

Yes, I think it would.
I wanted to put the latest version directly at update_url and the
stable versions in a subdirectory named like the release:
So if joyride moves to 9.1 and I do not provide a 9.1 dir it would
pick up the default one.
However - where would 8.2.1 development happen if not in joyride?
