Alright, that works of course. We're using Phing for packaging and it's
just like calling another target in the build script. So it's possible
that we put the blankpackage of older versions to SourceForge.net as well.

The build scripts could be used by anyone by the way (of course without
uploading stuff to SourceForge.net due to missing permission ;-). You
can find these things documented here in the wiki:

I'm going to modify these script today and will rearrange some things
(have builds only at one place and use the blank, dummy, introduction
repositories just for storing the resources). Besides that we're
thinking about the possibility to fetch the distribution directly from
Git (without using a build script here since everything is pre-prepared

So, just in case that's interesting for you as well.
