I don't think this is important, all we need is for Alexandre
to let them know where he wants the packages placed (via ftp in
a dir, via email, etc.)

The important part is to have a process in place like KDE:
  1. Alexandre tags the release
  2. Creates the source tarballs
  3. Notifies the package maintainers
  4. Binary package get built
  5. Website gets updated with links to src and bins
  6. Alexandre sends out the public announcement

This may be too complicated for the snapshots we're doing
now, but for 0.9/1.0/1.x it's definitely needed IMO to
avoid the rush of users to the site, only to find it
not updated, without binaries, etc.
