It is not that hard to do within the framework that is provided. All
I need to do is, http://sourceforge.net/docs/E04/#import :

* rsync the whole repository to my machine, done.
* Copy and modify the two files (Remove the RELEASE* tags from the
moved copies), done.
* Then make a tarball from them
* Upload them to the right directory
* Submit a support request

Once the support request is done then the rest of the patching can be
done.
