Sorry but personally I don't have the capacity to help, next week, i'll be 
doing 4.13 Beta 2.

For the tagging and tarballing part, have a look at we are using for both 
4.x and KF5. dfaure is doing the KF5 part so that means that even if i wrote 
them it seems they are not that hard to understand/reuse.
