There are actually quite many steps to take also for the packaging,
getting all needed packages to build, check that they are ok, update
online repositories etc etc after the submodule update has been completed.
Most of these are automated, but there is also significant amount of
manual work involved.

The fact that we cover a very large number of different platforms and
configurations as well as alternate ways of distribution brings a lot of
value for the users, but it also adds a lot to the effort needed to deploy
a successful release.
