 Building the distribution
 -------------------------
+ Note: You can practice the following steps (as far as creating the branch)
+ without committing anything. This ensures a good release candidate.
+
+ - Check out a fresh copy from SVN to make sure you have no local modifications,
+   especially those that might be hidden by svn:ignore settings.  Alternatively,
+   run 'svn st --no-ignore' and delete any extra files that you might have 
+   added/changed in your local copy. They must not be packed with
+   the release. It must be a pristine copy of the current trunk.
+
+ - Update the version numbers at various places.
 
  - Edit build.xml and replace the '-dev' text with '' i.e. nothing:
