Yeah, re-generate tarball from git doesn't really fly because it contains
auto-generated autoconf stuff that will never give you the exact matching
content without huge amounts of trouble.

I wonder if DV would be willing to generate sigs during release. It is
merely a case of running 'gpg --armour --detach libvirt-x.y.z.tar.gz'
and then uploading the .asc file to libvirt.org too. Likewise for the
python binding tar.gz - pypi would like if we uploaded a .sig file
