We also need this from the release team POV. So if you move, please

- don't do it too shortly before tagging a patchlevel release

- let us know how we can reassemble the tarball for our release

Please check with Dirk wether it works or not, as to cause as little 
disruption to our release process as possible. But you know all that, since 
you've taken part in all those discussions =)
