Agreed!  Any tarballs, rpms, etc., should be made from the tagged
source.  Period.  If rpm's are made from a tarball that is made from
tagged source, that's fine.  Nonetheless, any official release (major or
minor) should always be made from the resulting tagged source.  This
does two things.  First, it validates that everything has been properly
tagged.  Two, it ensures that there are not any localized files or
changes which might become part of a tarball/release which are not
officially part of the repository.

I can't stress enough that a release should never happen unless source
has been tagged.  Releases should ALWAYS be made from a checkout based
on tags.
