I tried to prepare a script that under the proposed rules create a tarball for 
module from the active folder. In the script is solved searching for last tag 
in current branch. Besides, are added checks if the current tree corresponds

the final tarballs, when the number of commits since the last tag is zero.

Please, test it. If it proved to be useful, script could be added into the git
