The targets release and fixrelease are for Org's maintainers.

Yes -- maybe with a warning like: "These target is meant for using by
the maintainers".

The other solution would be to simply remove these target and to use 
a local Makefile on the server.  It's more clean from the user's point 
of view, and just some little extra work for the maintainers.

What would you suggest?
