they are split into subtarballs now, following git module split. I only 
preserve tarball splitting over minor releases (aka if there are further git 
splits with 4.8.1 or 2, then I will reassmble the tarballs to make it 
seamless). It has been that way from the start in the 4.8 series.

I'm sorry, I can not maintain two sets of tarballs, it is just too much time 
that I don't have. If anyone wants to step up and integrates the rebuilding 
into the script set we have (trunk/kde-common/release) then I'm happy to use
