I think that you are conflating the "help with the release" with the need for
applications to be part of the bundle.

My dream is an automated server-side tarball generation, in a way that
developers can simply ask to release from a specific tag and don't care about
uploading the file to the right place on the incoming ftp/ssh server. But that
service could exist independently from the bundle.
