There should be a fundamental rule of GNOME that a package must pass a
make distcheck before it can be considered for distribution.  If
something doesn't pass, it should be considered a bug, a report filed
and an older package used.

Every single piece of maintainer documentation I know of says
to build your tarballs with distcheck.  I don't roll tarballs
with the dist target, and neither should anybody else.

On multiple occasions, I've found non-valid DocBook files in
rolled tarballs.  So clearly, there are people making tarballs
with just dist.  Maybe the release team should run distcheck,
and refuse tarballs (loudly and publicly, on d-d-l) that don't

help is on its way:

It works nicely for the gstreamer project already.
