Create a tarball from git is very straight forward.  I put .gitattribues:;a=blob;f=.gitattributes;h=15caafcf45711c658217db66862e93e56615e31a;hb=refs/heads/hjl/linux/applied

on hjl/linux/applied branch for Linux binutils to ignore GDB files.
I created a tag for release;a=commit;h=2fba13a799a2f6550595247ae8fe35bac016485d

Then I do

# git archive --format=tar --prefix=binutils/
hjl/linux/release/ > binutils-

It creates a tarball for my binutils release.  You just need a different
.gitattribues for GDB,
