+This document describes how to do a source release. It is based on the Apache

+## Prerequisites
 
+To create a release you must:
 
-Apache Ace Release Guide 
-This document describes how to do a source release. It is based on the Release FAQ [1]
+  * Have Subversion installed on your system;
+  * Have gpg installed on your system;

-To create a release you must:
+Before you can start staging a release candidate, you must:
 
-* Have Subversion installed on your system;
-* Have gpg installed on your system;
-* Have a public key added to the keys file, and committed to [2] 
-* If you are using an http proxy, configure the following:
+  * Make sure there are no dependencies on snapshots/unreleased versions;
+  * Increment the version parameter in build/build.gradle, if not already 
+    done, and commit;
+  * Under bndtools, release (only) the bundles that needs to be released
+    (using "Release workspace bundles" menu);
+  * Create a tagged version of the sources in preparation of the release
+    candidate.
 
-  export GRADLE_OPTS="-Dhttps.proxyHost=www.somehost.org -Dhttps.proxyPort=8080"
 
-Before you can start staging a release candidate, you must:
+## Release only the necessary bundles
 
-* make sure there are no dependencies on snapshots/unreleased versions;
-* increment the version parameter in build/build.gradle, if not already done, and commit.
-* under bndtools, release (only) the bundles that needs to be released (using "Release workspace
bundles" menu).
-* create a tagged version of the sources in preparation of the release candidate.
+Click on the Bndtools "Release workspace bundles", and release the bundles that
+have been modified and need to be released.
 
-Release only the necessary bundles
-===================================
+Do *not* release other *unmodified* bundles.
 
-Click on the bndtools "Release workspace bundles", and release the bundles that have been
modified and need to be released.
-Don't release other unmodified bundles.
-Once done, under the shell prompt, go to the "cnf/releaserepo/" directory, svn remove the
previous old released bundles,
-and svn add the new released bundles.
-refresh the repositories under bndtools, and commit.  
+Once done, under the shell prompt, go to the `cnf/releaserepo/` directory, run
+`svn remove` to remove the previous (old) versions of the released bundles, and
+run `svn add` to add the just released bundles.
 
-Create a tagged version
-=======================
+Refresh the repositories using Bndtools, and commit all changes.  
 
-Creating a tagged version of the sources can be done directly through svn (replace r<n>
by the actual release number, like "r1"):
 
-svn copy https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ace/trunk https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ace/releases/<version>
-m "Release of Apache Ace <version>"
+## Create a tagged version
 
-Staging a release candidate
-===========================
+Creating a tagged version of the sources can be done directly through svn
+(replace `r<n>` by the actual release number, like "r1"):
 
-Staging a release starts by checking out a tagged version of the sources (replace <version>
by the actual release version, like "2.0.0"):
+    v=<version> \
+      svn copy https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ace/trunk \
+      https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ace/releases/$v \
+      -m "Release of Apache Ace $v"
 
-svn co https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ace/releases/<version> apache-ace-<version>
 
-The next step is to build/test the software and create the release/staging/ directory (where
the source/jars will be packaged):
-(replace <version> by the actual release number, like "2.0.0")
+## Staging a release candidate
 
-Use a Java6 JDK
+Staging a release starts by checking out a tagged version of the sources 
+(again, replace `<version>` by the actual release version, like "2.0.0"):
 
-$ cd apache-ace-<version>
-$ ./gradlew rat 
-$ ./gradlew build
+    v=<version> \
+      svn co https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ace/releases/$v apache-ace-$v
 
-create the staging:
+The next step is to build/test the software and create the `release/staging/`
+directory (where the source/jars will be packaged, again, replace `<version>`
+by the actual release number, like "2.0.0"):
 
-$ ./gradlew makeStaging (this will create ./build/staging/ directory containing the signed
release archives)
+Use Java 7 as JDK
 
-You can upload the archives and the signatures to our development area, which we use to stage
this release candidate. This development area can be found at 
-https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/ace and adding files to it can be done using "svnpubsub"
which is taken care of by the following target:
+    $ cd apache-ace-<version>
+    $ ./gradlew rat
+    $ ./gradlew build runbundles
 
-$ ./gradlew commitToStaging
+Create the staging directory and artifacts (this will create `./build/staging/`
+directory containing the signed release archives):
 
-Voting on the release
-=====================
+    $ ./gradlew makeStaging
 
-Start a vote on the dev@ace.apache.org list, for example (be sure to replace <version>
with the correct release number, like "1.0.0"):
