Hi Lily,

No problem, I was just surprised to see some steps missing even though I 
knew the release was out.
I don't really have a feeling for when these steps should be done - i.e. 
the same day as the binaries went out, within one week or within two 
weeks after...

Just do "svn diff maven2" (or "svn diff" from within the maven2 directory).
The diff should consist of changes to the version tag within the various

I think you'll get into trouble with that... ASF will probably block 
your IP, because of too many failed login attempts.
If anyone wants to improve the notes for releasing Maven artifacts from 
Windows, I would recommend to replace the deployment URL to point it at 
a local *nix machine running an SSH daemon for testing. I found that to 
be the easiest debug approach, as I could read the SSH daemon logs to 
see which user name was being used etc.

I had the same issue when testing out the artifact release steps, and I 
had to add the following to my SSH config:
$ cat ~/.ssh/config
Host people.apache.org
     User <my_user_name_here>

No matter which option I used in Maven I could not get it to use the 
specified user name over my local user name. There are options to 
control this, but I couldn't get them to work.
Maybe this has been fixed by now?
I don't remember if I tried to specify the user name as part of the 
deployment URL.

If you get stuck, let me know and I'll generate the Maven artifacts for 
you. Since we're in different time zones, it may take up to 24 hours 
before things will happen.
