They'd still have to update the specfile (or equivalent, e.g. the debian/ 
directory) for the individual distribution. Uploading the tarball isn't the 
hard part of packaging, it can even be scripted (and I also don't see how it 
would be any easier to push the SCM changes than to upload the release 
tarball), updating the specfiles is.
