oh no. Once again I made a mistake when preparing the tarball, I'm
really sorry. How serious is it? Should I upload another tarball? 
When doing next release, before letting the tarball go, I'll ask you
if it's ok. In fact I was following the instructions on

The "Final Steps" section:

# Bump up the version number in file
# '' and 'make' the source
# 'make distcheck' the source to obtain the release tarball
# Commit the changes

But 'make distcheck' didn't work. So I made tarball by hand. Should I
at this point call 'make distclean' and make tarball by hand?

Apart from that, does anybody here think that we should make soon a
relase with that utf-8-names-fix ?
