Hi Kathey,

Funny you should ask, I'm in the middle of writing up a doc on the  
release process from end to end. This will be a good opportunity to  
test and review the instructions as you go along and we can make sure  
that nothing was missed.

So yes, I'll certainly help out with it as the process goes along.

The first thing to do would be to target the bugs you want fixed in  
the release in JIRA. I've created a 10.1.2  release in JIRA and moved  
all the bugs to be targeted for 10.1.2.

Speaking of versioning, this should probably be a separate mail,  
perhaps with a vote, but I like the idea that you proposed before:  
that a committer can bump the final version number if they are  
committing small fixes to the branch, and that larger bug-fix-rollup  
releases like 10.1.2 should be the level at which we are tracking  
versions in JIRA, in STATUS, and elsewhere. If there's consensus for  
that, I can work on writing ant targets for bumping the version  
number and automatically dealing with the associated test diffs, etc.
