Hi Jiajia,

you can test the release build by running the "dryRun". This shows at
least if the release build works.

You need a GPG key, for the "dryRun" you can use any but for a real
release a strong one is required [3].

You should also prepare your Maven settings.xml, [1] shows an example.

Then run the dryRun release build with

    mvn release:prepare -DdryRun=true -B

This runs a simulation of the release build, it generates lot of
pom.xml.tag and that would be committed by the real release
build. You can cleanup the generated files with

    mvn release:clean

You can also look into [1] how the release is done for the LDAP API, for
Kerby it will look similar. Further information about ASF wide release
requirements can be found under [2], [3], [4].

Kind Regards,
