FWIW, I don't see any reason why individual maintainers are being asked
to use this particular tool to create tarballs.

It was clear from the earlier mails that the release-team would be
using BuildStream, it really wasn't explicit that the developers and
maintainers of individual modules were also being asked that.

gnome-control-center requires a newer version of gnome-desktop, which
has usually been released by the release-team on the day of the tarball

gnome-settings-daemon requires a new version of gnome-session which
hasn't been released yet.
