I know, but I just figured releasing the source archives in an
open-source project is kind of an important thing. So I figured it
must have been discussed somewhere and someone could point me to it.
When the release was posted for signatures, it was implied they were
coming soon:

That is what I expected. I just figured the project would state this
somewhere. The files are still listed as Unix tarballs which makes it
sound like it is meant to build on Unix.
