Later tonight, right now I have no time.

Indeed, there might be the glitch that the include/VERSION file was
not updated prior to tagging (... not bright enough any more at

I am still updating the release procedure to the new git(hub) workflow.

I don't know what's common for packagers.
Any preferences?

In any case, the tarball will be uploaded to the usual place on the
GRASS server, also in future.

With the next (RC) release, it will be all-in-one again but this time
the needed updates of the workflow already took many hours, and I ran
out of time last night.
