libs/apps in kdesupport should do their own release and tagging. You can use the script in playground/utils/createtarball if you like.

If you provide a tarball somewhere, it makes sense to release a beta of kde depending on that piece of software to find remaining issues. I think most distro's have a package ready for automoc, as akonadi already depends on it.  SVN users usually compile kdesupport anyhow, so I think it is safe to make the switch.

Can't comment on that.
