There is a difference between something that is tagged upstream and they think of it as released/stable/suitable-for-users, and something that is just "whatever git master pointed to when somebody updated the package". By release I didn't really mean to say "tarball only". More the semantics of upstream deciding that a particular set of files was ok.
