Good idea!

Thanks for reviving the discussion! We already have a release target. (See
msg297 and in particular msg454.) How about we make this a priority for the
upcoming sprint?

In today's Fast Downward meeting we noted that having date-based releases like 
"Fast Downward 18.05" might be a good idea (even if we don't release regularly). 
Like Ubuntu, we could have point releases like 18.05.1 if we need to make more 
than one release in a given month.

Once we do this, we should probably also send a (one-time) announcement to
planning-list, with a pointer to the Fast Downward mailing list.

The licensing bit is now separately handled in issue143.

Good thing we didn't specify a year. :-)

Once we're done with the cleanup, we should make an official code distribution.
For this, we need:

 * a (simple) website where we can put it
 * a better/current README
 * an update to the "make_dist" script to prepare an appropriate package
 * a proper licence (should be included in the package by make_dist)
 * some policy on how to deal with the various contributed packages from
Technion and Silvia (like should the thing including everything still be called
"Fast Downward"?)
 * some version numbering scheme and a tags directory in the repository

For the licence, we have decided to use the GPL. (Need to find out which version
of it.)

Some of the above points should probably be broken down into separate issues later.
