Understood - I was confused by the fact that the relase-M1.tar.gz
contained both. That would make no sense if it was part of the release
(because you need tar.gz to get to the zips) but I now understand that
it is not, its just a convenience for testers.

Aside: "Convenience for testers" is a red flag for me. If there is
anything inconvenient about downloading, installing and testing the real
kit, then we should fix the kit, not provide a convenience for testers
that won't be available to users. That's not a showstopper though, more
a suggestion for next release.
