 For the purposes of the "Adoption of New Codebase" action, the Accumulo codebase is defined
as the Accumulo site content, primary project code, and all contributed code ("contribs")
as they exist in their respective repositories. Adoption of a new codebase generally refers
to the creation of a new contrib repository, but could cover, for example, a rework of the
project site, or merging a contrib project into the primary codebase.

+# Release Plans
+
+The approval of a release plan begins the process of creating a new project release. The
process ends when a release candidate is approved.
+
+An Accumulo release plan consists of at least the following:
+
+* a version number
+* a feature freeze date
+* a code freeze date
+* a release date
+* the choice of a release manager
+
+After feature freeze, new features should not be accepted for the release. After code freeze,
only critical fixes should be accepted for the release. The release manager guides the decision
on accepting changes.
+
+All dates in a plan are estimates, as unforeseen issues may require delays. The release manager
may adjust dates as needed. In serious circumstances, the release manager may opt to call
a re-plan vote.
