The first git based builds for trunk are successfully uploaded to the server. Note that they appear on top of the list, 
because they are named gnucash-git-... instead of gnucash-svn-...

Also since git hashes are not sequential as the svn revision numbers 
were, the uploaded packages are no longer ordered chronologically. To 
fix this it may be a good idea to add the build date in the package 
name, so the packages would be called:
