So although it is possible to pack and re-pack at any time, perhaps we
need some guidelines?  Maybe Linus should just do a re-pack as each
2.6.x release is made (or perhaps just every 2.6.even release if that is
too often).  It has already been noted offlist that repositories hosted on
kernel.org can just copy pack files from Linus (or even better hardlink them).
