I see. It can be scripted, as this GUI tool shows:
But I do not know an commandline interface for this. But it should be
to use it just as a python module to create a CLI tool.
Nevertheless for proper packaging, the tarball does not necessarily need to
hosted at SF, but it would be nice to have a direct source for the tarball.

Can you maybe change the version of the 1.12.2h release to 1.23.3 or name
tarball vym-1.12.2h.tar.gz? Otherwise this is only a source of more
and also the Fedora upstream release monitoring system would not be able to
pick this up, because it uses a regex search for release tarballs. Therefore
it won't register an changed tarball, but only if there would be a link to a
tarball with a new version.
In conclusion, it would be very nice if the release process could be
1) providing tarballs of every stable release
2) having unique tarball names for every stable release
I am happy to help you with improving your release scripts to make this
