What do you mean by pack? Do you mean binary archives? If you mean source 
archive, can't the archive of master from git.or.cz be used for source archive 
once we decide master is ready?

Ok, I should be able to do that without errors.

I'm not so sure about the overview but I'll try a cooperative approach whose 
outline is the following:

1) Announce a release candidate release. If possible make a tarball available 
somewhere or maybe add a tag in git. At least announce it

2)  Start to only include in master cherry-pick of bugfix in mob. Also kindly 
ask people to consider only commiting in mob bugfixes (but let mob widely 

3) Ask people to check their contributions is mentionned in the Changelog


4) Ask if anybody still has plan to fix things


5) Release according to the steps you gave.

I'm very busy and will continue to do so for the next 16 days. I'll try to 
start steps 1-3 in the next couple of days though. Then I'll be able to answer 
again and will continue with steps 4 and 5.

Good, because I have linux but no Windows. :) We'll complement each other.
