There are workflow reasons that I publish it this way. Way back,
Subversion used to include package building components in the
"contrib" subdirectory. I've not seen anyone trying to bring that
back, or set up a parallel "subversion-packaging" project. If there's
enough enthusiasm to re-introduce something like that, I'd be happy to
work with it.
