[Product-Developers] Releasing plugins to pypi AND plone.org

I noticed a lot of plugins these days have newer releases on pypi than  
on plone.org.
This becomes a pain for experienced people has we have to search both  
places to see if there are updates. It becomes off putting for newbies  
as they will look at plone.org and see much fewer plone 4 compatible  
releases than there are in reality due to the filtering. In addition  
they see a big warning flag saying the product is potentially not  
supported anymore if there was been no plone.org release in a year.

I suspect part of the reason for this is that tools like  
jarn.mkrelease are getting more popular. Once you release once in  
mkrelease it doesn't let you release again to another server without  
playing with its settings.

You can get round this by specifying two index servers

mkrelease -d pypi -d plone.org src/mypackage

I'm pretty sure you can also do something like this

mkrelease -d pypi src/mypackage
mkrelease --no-tag -d plone.org src/mypackage

or is there another reason why plone.org/products aren't being updated?
