I noticed this as well after my yesterday's reply. It was me that created the 
2.4.0 tag, but I clearly forgot to update the relevant configuration 

At that point I didn't have access yet to SourceForge and it didn't even occur 
to me to upload the tarball. I remember my goal then was to update the 
documentation available on the website.

This mess is why I wanted to get the documentation release process written

I would just go for 2.4.1, as you did.
