Perhaps the packagers could collaborate with the maintainers on it?
Some level of collaboration is necessary to ensure that a certain
release means the same things on all the distributions, and that we do
package code that is ready to be. Also the release script does things
like uploading to the official source repo and sending out
announcement mail, which obviously needs to be agreed with the
maintainer.

Without the above conditions, it's probably better to just release
from git, which is better than nothing for packages on which we can't
get maintainers collaboration.
