No, but the source/binary discussion is being swept under the carpet
as if there were nothing to discuss and it was *evident* that we
should distribute the binaries. Perhaps you have noticed that I
disagree with that idea.

Yes. And I bet that in most source-only projects, like Emacs, the
usual way is to put a notice in the project web page, publish an
announcement in the relevant mailing lists and newsgroups, or send
people an e-mail if they are subscribed to e-mail notifications.

Which are perfectly fine ways to do it and won't get the tiniest
objection from me.
