Hi everybody,

in the long run I could use both, but ATM the most straightforward way
for me would be to package from a git tag, especially if I could use
git archive to get a orig.tar.gz.

Apart from packaging, I think that AUCTeX users would benefit from
having clearly marked stable releases.  What about using some branching
git workflow like using the master branch to track stable releases and a
next branch to develop new features until they are deemed stable enough
to be included in master?

P.S. I'll be very busy for a week or so starting from tomorrow,
therefore I might not be able to comment on this thread until then.

Best regards,
