Of course also work on any other issue you like.
If you have a patch you would like to have in the release
then get it contributed.

We are currently up to the following sections of "How to release":

Tasks to be done by the project before the release can start
http://forrest.apache.org/procedures/release/How_to_release.html#prep

Preparing the code base
http://forrest.apache.org/procedures/release/How_to_release.html#PrepCodeBase

We need someone to check that the plugins descriptors in
both core and whiteboard are up-to-date and then to verify
that plugins have been properly deployed to the web site.
Perhaps each plugin needs to be deployed one final time.
There are some other notes about plugins in that doc.
