Guten Abend Everyone!
To aid with use of our tarballs on Windows and case-insensitive file
systems, releaseme now makes sure  that the tarballs it generates
are safe to use in such contexts.
As this is a major problem for pretty much every source tarball as it
prevents people from doing Windows builds and/or unpack on exfat/fat32
this is considered a fatal flaw in the tarball. To that end if you use
releaseme you may want to run tarme now so your next release doesn't
get held up by case-insensitive file conflicts.
If you have any questions please do ask.
