I'm sympathetic to your concern. However, we don't (to my knowledge)  
have a documented release process for our projects. So, we're  
currently leaving these practices in the hands of our release  
managers. In this case, I did what the release manager asked me to do...

So, what do you feel would be the appropriate techniques for building  
a release?
