The intent was to create an rpm with that version. The tricky thing is
that this needs to make some changes to files containing a version
number (Makefile.ver / mk/version.mk and debian/ and packaging/*/*spec
files) and the CHANGES file. Currently "make release VERSION=3.13" does
this by creating a release/ directory and copying all the files in
there, then changing the the ones it knows about. Since this does not
use git export, it whines if the tree is not clean or pushed, so then
you often need to add FORCE=1 (I know you love these tweaks :)

We could alternatively make the version changes, commit them, then use
git archive to create the export and then chop off the head.

Seems too complicated for me to remember :)
