Well, as packagers, we'd like actual tarballs, with a defined version number, 
not just tags. Because with the tags, we still have to check them out, tar 
them up and figure out what version number to give to them. RPM requires a 
tarball as input, not a tag.

I realize that making actual releases is not the top priority doing the 
development phase (doing development is), but easily-packagable (pre)releases 
make it easier for us to offer them in testing repositories (in Fedora's case, 
Rawhide and kde-redhat unstable), which leads to better prerelease testing for 
all of us.
