You can pass the sb-set-builder command --bset-tar-file and it will create a
binary tarball. See
for details.

After you have run the download command from earlier in this thread, yes it
should. Any git source is packaged as a tarball and is available under the
release and the RSB knows this:

Have a look in the VERSION file in the top of the released RSB tarball.

A release must live forever and we cannot be certain any referenced places will
exist forever so we capture the packages and place here.
