Projects Need Named Releases
Another panel on the project for releases would be appreciated.
Some projects need to be able to bundle particular versions into a release. These archives will not necessarily contain the same files as stored in the repository. For example, some autoconf files won't be present, but the generated configure script will be present. Similar issues occur with flex and bison.
An initial implementation would simply allow a series of .tar.bz2 files to be stored with some associated release notes. A refinement would be automatically generated .tar.gz or .tar files upon download.
