+Note: This document was updated in the context of releasing Ant
+      1.9.7 which was the first release cut from the 1.0.x branch.
       Please interpret the branch names, tags, etc. according to
       your context.
 
+      It reflects the way Stefan prefers to cut the release, parts of
+      this process haven't even been discussed on the dev list and may
+      change with later releases.
+
 1.  Propose a release plan for vote.  This should set out the timetable for
     the release under ideal circumstances.  
 
-    The issue of whether to create a branch for the release should be
-    discussed in the release vote.
+    In reality, you send a note to the list that you intend to cut the
+    release and wait for a few days whether anybody objects.
 
-2.  We used until Ant 1.6 to create branches, for instance ANT_16_BRANCH
-    to allow parallel development on master and on the current branch.
-    Given the slow development speed we've reached with 1.9.x this
-    doesn't seem to be necessary anymore.
+    We haven't created extra branches for releases in a long time and
+    with out new 1.9.x LTS policy there is a permanent branch for
+    Java5 compatible releases anyway. So no extra branch for the
+    releases is needed.
 
-    For more information on performing branching and merging, please visit
-    http://git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Git-Branching-Branches-in-a-Nutshell
+    This document assumes you are familiar with git
+    http://git-scm.com/book/en/v2/
+    may be a good guide if you are not.

     lib/optional directory.  All dependencies are either provided by
     JDK 1.5.0 or downloadable using
-    ant -f fetch.xml -Ddest=optional.
+    ant -f fetch.xml -Ddest=optional
     To find out whether you have all the libraries you need, execute
     the build with -verbose option and scan for lines beginning with
     "Unable to load...". 
 
-4.  Create a branch just for the release, even if you've decided to
-    not work with long lived branches in step 2.  This branch can be
-    removed after the release.
+3.  We don't want tags for failed votes to end up on out branches so
+    the release is first created from a detached head.
 
-    Switch to that branch.
+    Checkout the HEAD of the 1.9.x branch as a detached head:
 
-    $ git checkout -b prepare_Ant_1.9.5
+    $ git checkout 1.9.x^0

+5.  Set the version number in several files to the required new

+    * manual/credits.html  (version should already be correct here)
+    * build.xml properties : project.version,manifest-version,pom.version

+      if you've got mvn installed
+
+      $ mvn versions:set -DnewVersion=1.9.7 -DgenerateBackupPoms=false

+    $ ./build.sh
+    $ ./build.sh test
+    # if you've got maven installed
+    $ mvn -f src/etc/poms/pom.xml -DskipTests  package

-7.  Next bootstrap, build and run the tests.  Then build the

+    $ ./dist/bin/ant -nouserlib -lib lib/optional distribution
 
-    The file release.sh gives an idea of how to do this build process.
     build.xml specifies that the code should be compiled with
     source=1.5 and target=1.5.
 
-    git tag -s -m "Tagging RC1 for version 1.9.5 of Ant" ANT_195_RC1
-    git push --tags
+8.  Commit your changes, tag them, push them.
+
+    $ git tag -s -m "Tagging RC1 for version 1.9.7 of Ant" ANT_197_RC1
+    $ git push
+    $ git push --tags
+

+    git repository
+    <https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf?p=ant-antlibs-common.git;a=blob;f=KEYS;h=dc62b011b1b429bd6de913f8f2bce79b715f96db;hb=HEAD>
+    - and that you copy the KEYS file to /www/www.apache.org/dist/ant

+10. Sign the distribution files
 
-8.  Sign the distribution files using the script release/signit.xml

+    other requires you to run gnupg manually. The first version didn't
+    work for Stefan when he built the first release candidate for
+    1.9.7.
+
+    a. Using the script release/signit.xml
 
     This script requires using commons-openpgp to sign the artefacts,

     http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/commons/sandbox/openpgp/trunk
-    You have to build it using maven
-    
+    You have to build it using maven.
+
+    $ mvn install
+
+    The script assumes commons-openpgp (and bouncycastle) are in your
+    local maven repository.
+
     You can create a property file gnupg.properties in your home directory 
-    with your key id
+    with your key id - like
+
+    keyid=5F6B8B72
+
+    or use -Dkeyid
+
     and pass your key passphrase on the command line with -Dpassword=****
 
-    Before you do that, ensure that the key you use is inside the KEYS
-    file in Ant's git repository
-    <https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf?p=ant-antlibs-common.git;a=blob;f=KEYS;h=dc62b011b1b429bd6de913f8f2bce79b715f96db;hb=HEAD>
-
-    and that you copy the KEYS file to
-    /www/www.apache.org/dist/ant
+    $ ./build.sh -f release/signit.xml -Dpassword=****
 
-    Also make sure you have sent the key that you use to a public
-    keyserver.

     Use the target txt2html of docs.xml
