With r1451136 I have enabled the generation of .md5 and .sha1 for dist 
packages, required by [4]: please check it to confirm that it is working 
The .asc files will also need to be generated, but I haven't found an 
easy way to to this via ANT, hence I guess we have no option but the 
manual way, e.g.

$ gpg --armor --output --detach-sig
$ gpg --armor --output cocoon-2.1.12-src.tar.gz.asc --detach-sig 
$ gpg --armor --output --detach-sig
$ gpg --armor --output cocoon-2.1.12-deps.tar.gz.asc --detach-sig 

I urge to note that the release manager for 2.1.12 will also need to be 
sure that his own key is contained in [5].

We have recently turned all the "To be done" statements from [6] into 
"Done", hence If no specific limitations and / or bugs are known 
affecting the current versions of dependencies, I see no reason for keep 

I'd create the release 2.1.13 on JIRA, move COCOON-2333 there and start 
the release process for 2.1.12.
