Good idea !

I was also thinking about doing a script to automate creating tarballs
from svn/git repository for Mageia software (and can be extended to
other software maybe). Instead of adding rules in all makefiles to
generate tarballs. So you could retrieve mgarepo with this command :
$ get-tarball mgarepo 1.9.8
And it creates mgarepo-1.9.8.tar.bz2
And we could use it to automate sending of tarballs on the mirror.
