anlambert triaged this task as Normal priority.

The issue comes from the fact that the webapp gets the release names from the release objects of our data model and not
from the branch names targeting releases in associated snapshot object.

For instance if we look at the 9999.13-1 release of that debian origin, we can see that there is three branches with different names
targeting the same release.

The simplest fix imho is to add a new column to the releases list view in the webapp displaying the branch name associated to a
release, this will avoid confusion when multiple branches target the same release object.

Fixed and deployed.
