If it's only about creating a tarball, then 'git tag' (or, I assume, a 
commit hash) will suffice -- GitHub automatically tarballs for you:


However I believe sdist does some more stuff (generates some files 
before tarballing or similar); although as I don't know the specifics I 
can't tell you whether we need to do it for Cython. E.g., for libraries 
written in Cython one could hook sdist to Cythonize to C files; of 
course, with Cython we bootstrap instead so that's not an issue.
