The zip bundles, no?  The guild tool should create the bundles.

I had another thought.  When someone submits a bundle, they should HTTP
POST it to a URL on  The POST will create a new URL
for the incoming package.  That way review can proceed around the one
copy of the bundle, and it's a place to do automated tests on the
bundle.  We can add a "guild upload" command or so to upload a new
bundle.  Maybe "guild upload" can sign the bundle as well.

Probably ijp's, dunno; surely we should get this onto Savannah though?

Dunno, I was thinking address@hidden or something --
something like ftpuploads (see maintain.texi).
