The way it should work IMO is to do whatever needs doing on the branch,
including filling in the dates (a few days in advance) on the RELEASE
and STATUS files, and then generate the tarball + sig and put that 
pair up for vote.  If the vote doesn't pass by the dates you used, 
the vote fails and that version is an unreleased dud.
