When releases are made, the actual release processes I know of involve
updates to a mailing list; the wiki simply reflects the latest updates
that have been announced.  Anyone following that release process can
update the appropriate page (or, if they are not a wiki admin, ask an
admin to do it).

I would love to see a similar brief summary of the latest stable raw
sugar and soas releases (stable and dev) as well - preferably on both
the olpc-wiki and the sl-wiki.
