I've spent a lot of time thinking about this - and have modified my
opinion somewhat. I think focusing on the act of releasing as a point
for quality is myopic. I think we should be establishing the quality
that we demand at all times in our release and master branch - and we
should actively be verifying these things before they hit those
branches.

Not enforcing that quality up front leaves us in a place to always
play catch up. So I've changed the title of this to 'Release Branch
Criteria'; and here is my first draft:

https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/CLOUDSTACK/Release+Branch+Criteria

Obviously this is a draft, and needs work - and probably needs more
people actually defining what is important. I did this off of the top
of my head, and there are plenty of other functionality that remains
to be tested.  This document also probably needs  rearranging to
reflect where/when things should be tested. (I am looking at you
Prasanna :) )

Thoughts, comments, flames?
