OK, but that does say "filename" rather than "pathname".  The
"target/" prefix needs to be removed.

So please remove the spurious target/ prefixes from the next RC.

Most other projects release binary (rather than dist) archives; the
binary archive will contain those source files that are used at

OK; again not a blocker.
