That's what I meant with "final tarball".

Reword the paragraph in question until it is fine.  English often
provides opportunity for deleting "the" or "a" or "which" without
changing meaning.

You unzip straight into a suitable package tree (can be
~/.xemacs-packages usually).  That's all there is to it.

Mail or fencepost.  I don't want files with the official file names
