jenkins job generating tarballs of all tagged releases
It would be great to have a script (which could subsequently be executed by a jenkins job) that would generate tarball releases for all our tags.
So basically something like:
foreach repository: foreach tag: autoreconf -fi && ./configure && make dist
If some older tags don't build [anymore] we could either explicitly blacklist them, or we simply build only tags no older than N years.
The resulting tarball releases should be collected somewhere in a directory which could then be subsequently rsync'ed to a public server/directory.
