distro wants a stable tarball release #103

Hi. I hate to annoy you with a trifle, but would it be possible for you to copy out a tarball release of 2.9.1 and get it placed on the following page (with the other official releases):


I know that 2.9.1 is tagged in Git, but I am attempting to get my distro maintainers (Gentoo devs) to update their ebuilds from 2.8.0 to 2.9.1, and this is what they need from upstream before they will do it. Here is their response to my update request:

Could you please ask upstream to release a tarball for it? So far, 2.9.1 is
only a tag on github.

(I'm aware of the ZIP and TAR.GZ links on github, but they don't appear to be
stable. For example, the tarball for 2.8.0 downloaded from there gives me
different checksums from the ones in our package's Manifest.)

For what it's worth, 2.9.1 has already made it into Gentoo, even though that page hasn't been updated.

See #145 for future releases.
