seriously FPC devs, wake up. A few months ago, we had a discussion. You show me the clusterfuck it is to release...we're in 2016, there's gitlab, github,... there are plenty of continuous integration services, there are containers, etc.
Thanks for the feedback. A good news.About my comment on git you've reply "source only". Nay. You don't get the thing. With these site, patchs, as send to Mantis, are called branches. Instead of sending a patch, you show your branch with the modifications, it's called a pull request.
With the CI services, merging and building is done on each push on a server that solely used to test if it will work.
Also people don't have to send a new patch after each comment, they simply update their branch, and then the pull request is updated automatically.
