Why does the script need to be run on people.a.o? Infra hat on, unless
there is a good reason, please use some other a.o box for this (eg
subversion.zones.a.o, also FreeBSD).
Also: why does the script need to be run on a.o hardware? (rather than
on the release manager's hardware) Using a.o hardware has implications
on trusting the resulting tarballs in case people.a.o gets broken into.
