We have no obligation to do so but, equally, it is not necessarily a bad 
idea. At the moment we are just keeping the load on release managers and 
testing the releases a little lower as each has to be signed and 
md5summed. That said, it should be as little as repeating the 
instructions with s/.tar.gz/.zip/ and the command to create a zip file 
and all that could be documented.

All good points. We should get these items corrected soon. If you want 
to try to correct these issues, that should be fine.

Noting the difference somewhere should be enough for now as long as it 
is not too cumbersome or confusing.
