I am a presently helping the Gentoo Linux java community by creating
I am therefore emailing to request that you include source releases on your
website for your future releases
(and it would also be nice if you could do this for the latest stable

These releases will preferable be versioned (izpack-3.9.1.tar.gz for

Gentoo is a source based linux distro and as a result expects that
everything, where ever possible, is to be packaged in source form.

Having you (upstream) release source packages on your site will enable me to
hopefully roll out the new releases very quickly to gentoo users.

Just for your info here are some links that might be of interest.

you can see our motivation)

Thank you for your time.
