 <h2 class="underlined_10">Who is the Release Manager</h2>
 <div class="section">
-<p>The Release Manager is a single person who does the final work
-              of the release process to prepare and sign release packages,
-              co-ordinate testing and voting, uploading to the dist area and
-              ensuring mirrors, and sending the announcement.
-            </p>
-<p>
-              The project developers have the role of preparing the product to release quality, testing, fixing issues,
-              and voting for the release candidate.
-              The votes of the PMC will decide whether the product is fit for release.
-            </p>
-<p>The RM makes all the decisions regarding the
-              actual preparations and the doing of the release.
-              Many projects have the same release manager for years.
-            </p>
-<p>The RM could do the job alone, which enables speedy process.
-              There are not actually many tasks where assistants can help.
-              However it is a good idea to have an assistant so as to pass
-              on the knowledge, to help document the process, and to perceive potential flaws.
-              More than one assistant would probably hinder.
-            </p>
-<p>The RM should be comfortable with using SVN and be familiar with
-              the ASF hardware, with the distribution mirror system, and with ASF release procedures.
-              The following notes are terse. If you don't understand, then probably not ready to be RM.

+        There are various reasons for voting on the Release Plan, e.g. makes
+        people aware that a code-freeze is about to happen; encourage them to
+        get involved with the release; ensure that the date is suitable and
+        people will be around to test and then vote on the actual release. This
+        ensures that it is the PMC as a whole that prepares and issues the
+        release, rather than an individual. Such procedures give us the
+        protection accorded by the ASF being a corporation. See a good
+        discussion <a href="http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?t=114296877800003">in
