Since I'm taking over for Alex for a bit, I'll confirm that I have
read through that page.  It's been reasonable helpful, along with the
similar page on the incubator website.

I think I have a handle on the steps, but will certainly ask if I find
that I'm confused or need guidance!

Also, I'll use that same structure for the actual release dir (once we
get through the voting process).

Thanks Noah!
