Indeed, this snapshot is missing the =RELEASE-ID file. I've just
uploaded a brand-new snapshot which should work out of the BOX.

Yeah, a README is definitly a good idea. I'll add one before the next
official release.

That's an artefact of the build-system used. It's true that an
end-user wouldn't care about the source tree, but developers do; so
the author of package-framework (the build-system) has decided not to
allow configuring in-tree.
