I could push out more releases and tag nearly every new feature that’s
stable, if you like. But here’s my view that struggles me. I am using
releases to reconsider what’s done in the project and what could be done
next. Just tagging it would be a soft hint for you what’s changed. This
would be solved by having a simple Changelog file in the project, which
I would accept.

But you being a packager, here’s my most important question: Do you need
the checksum of the tarball? If not, then the link to the cgit interface
would be enough for download. This saves much time in the release gener‐
