I didn't respond to this initially because I wanted others to have a
chance to comment first, but I don't think anyone did :(

As far as I personally am concerned, the bzr branch is all that is
needed. If I want to get the code locally, depending on what I want to
do with it, I'll use bzr branch to make my own local branch copy or
I'll use bzr export to just get the files. There's no need for a .tgz
package, since I can get the same thing with bzr export.

bzr export used to be deathly slow for some unknown (to me) reason, but
with recent bzr it's quite quick.

Other than posting here, you could consider posting a "bug report" in
the Mailman tracker at <https://bugs.launchpad.net/mailman>. This is
the current official bugs/patches/RFEs tracker.
