No. We have to distribute it the same way we distribute the binaries, so David
is correct. And yes, this was a release with many hiccups, he's correct there,
too. And I can understand him, I probably would feel the same.

But as it stands we're going to release the SRPMS a bit later than the
binaries, and we will try to make the next release smoother.
