Not to butt-in, but based on the website's description of the Mainline branch, that is the one that should be packaged by default, and the Stable branch should be the special case.

"Mainline - 1.1.3
This series is actively developed but intended for use in production environments as long as appropriate testing is performed, and should be preferred whenever there is a need for supporting an arbitrary, expanding set of packages or environments."[1]

"Stable - 1.0.3
This series does not add new features and avoids changes that might affect building packages against musl or using applications in environments where they are already known to work. It is intended mostly for developers targetting a fixed profile of application software and kernel, such as in embedded development. "[1]
