I fully agree with your argument about producing reproducible artifacts.

However I'm not sure what to think when you say 'unofficial release'. A
release is a release, whether we send a note to announce@a.o or not.

Until we have mastered the manual release process we shouldn't attempt
to give this responsibility to continuum - not that it's not possible
though (i even think it's quite easy to do so).

We obviously have come to the point where we need to seriously start
looking at the release plugin and find out how it fits into our build
infrastructure. I could do some ground work here and document the
process for others to follow, unless someone else volunteers ?
