I would go with Framework + Logkit followed by the rest of the
"containerkit" subprojects and then by Fortress and the components.

We should provide at least one release candidate distribution as
source and binary before any final release.  General workflow for a
release looks like:

  1. Someone steps up as "Release Manager" to spearhead the release
  2. Cleans up the code and identifies a revision number for an RC release
  3. PMC signs off on a RC release
  4. Release Manager publishes the RC release
  5. Start collecting bugs (if any) via JIRA
  6. If there are bugs, do another RC release.  
  7. When the RC has been stable for at least a week (no new bug
reports), request a formal release by the PMC

The Avalon framework is a widely used dependency, so a new release
candidate is something many other projects may want to know about.
