Hi Kathey,

I am on vacation right now. When I get back, I intend to update the 
instructions for publishing a release: 

The instructions for publishing the released docs have changed. 
Previously, we did the following:

1) Ran "ant repackagedocs" in order to create a zipfile of docs.

2) Unzipped that zipfile into a directory on people.apache.org.

For the moment, you'll still need to do step (1). Then you'll need to do 
the following:

2a') Unzip the zipfile into your Derby website client at 
build/site/docs/10.8. This will overwrite the current 10.8 docs with the 
new 10.8.3 version.

2b') Then commit build/site/docs. You may also need to commit the top 
directory of your website client. Shouldn't hurt if you do so even if 
it's not necessary.

In addition, svnpubsub has changed the instructions for adding a 
download page to the website. Under the old scheme, after checking in 
the new download page, you would have to do the following:

3) Log onto people.apache.org, go to /www/db.apache.org/derby, and do 
"ant update".

You shouldn't have to do that now.

The svnpubsub machinery should pick up your commits to the docs subtree 
and to the main website. In an hour or so you should verify that the 
revised 10.8 docs and the new download page have turned up on the Derby 
website. Please tell us if you encounter speedbumps. This will be a good 
test of whether svnpubsub is working for us.
