Maybe releases still aren't frequent enough. There can be small bug
fixes made yet no release.

Additionally, it may just be personal development process preference to
deal with the repo rather than a tarball. You'd have a hard time
changing a distro's internal methodology on how to do things.

Trying to change ALL distro's to map to a tarball model is just too
rigid, and I don't think that would happen.

Just my take though.....
