More notes on releases

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      * Best practices - LICENSE and NOTICE files in jars so that they can be distributed
by maven
      * Add how to create a specification complient MANIFEST http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/releases/prepare.html#checkjarmanifest
      * Extract advice on release process from http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/releases/
-     
+     * Checks (source distribution):
+        * Ensure that source distribution builds according to the instructions contained
+        * LICENSES!!!
+        * Check for copyright notices in files. Notes to above
+        * Check that document is readable
+        * Check libraries:
+          * ASF policy on dependencies
+          * Appropriate license and notice files (where applicable)
+     * License for javadocs. This is a little controversial. Adding LICENSE and copyright
information to javadocs is a little bit of a PITA. Some legal systems require explicit licenses
so it may be worth the effort. 
  
   * http://incubator.apache.org/guides/projects.html is just a landing page. probably not
a good idea to take this one on ATM. Need a guide for mentors and projects which is what this
was probably intended to be.
