+                <title>What goes into a release</title>
+                <p>
+                    A podling should begin to familiarize itself with ASF policies for releases.  Those policies can be found at <a href="http://www.apache.org/dev/#releases">http://www.apache.org/dev/#releases</a>.
+                </p>
+                <p>
+                    It is well understood that one of the goals of incubation is to help a podling understand how to
+                    build <a href="http://www.apache.org/dev/#releases">ASF compliant releases</a>. This is why its
+                    mandatory to have at least 3 +1 votes from
+                    <a href="&root-path;/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Incubator+Project+Management+Committee+%28PMC%29">IPMC members</a>
+                    review the releases (this should include your <a href="&root-path;/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Mentor">mentors</a> but is not mandatory)
+                    for accuracy in compliance with the ASF and <a href="&root-path;/incubation/Incubation_Policy.html#Releases">Incubator policies</a>.
+                    The podling community, of course, needs to be fully engaged in review process as well. Anybody reviewing
+                    the releases will provide the release manager and IPMC members with information about what is wrong
+                    with the release. The severity of the issues and whether they are blocking or not may be discussed
+                    but the ultimate guidance on where podling releases may get additional flexibility belongs to the mentors and IPMC members.

+                <p>
+                    The <a href="&root-path;/incubation/Incubation_Policy.html#Releases">Incubator policies</a> apply two additional constraints to podlings for their releases.  They are repeated here for clarity only.

+                        <li>Release artifacts must include <em>incubating</em> in the final file name</li>
+                        <li>Release artifacts must include a <a href="&root-path;/guides/branding.html#disclaimers">disclaimer</a> within the release artifact(s) as noted</li>

+                </p>
+                <p>
+                    In order for a podling to receive full permission from the IPMC to execute the release, the release
+                    vote must be held on the <a href="&root-path;/guides/lists.html#general+at+incubator.apache.org">incubator general list</a>
+                    and pass based on the <a href="http://apache.org/foundation/voting.html#ReleaseVotes">standard Package Release voting rules</a>.
+                    Only Incubator PMC votes are binding, but all are encouraged to vote.

+	      Having at least three moderators is recommended to spread the load.
+	      </p><p>
+	      The proposal should contain the rest of the information that needs to be collected
+	      before the mailing lists can be requested. Incubator is the responsible top level project.
+	      So the domain <code>MUST</code> be <code>incubator.apache.org</code>.
+	      For example:

+	      <ul>

+	        For initial community building it is usually appropriate to only have
+	        a "dev" list, to keep the discussions focussed. Later add a "user" list
+	        if needed.
+	      </p>
+	      <note>
+	Commits under <code>http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/<em>${podling}</em></code>
+	will be emailed to <code>commits@${podling}.incubator.apache.org</code>.
+	Any deviation will 
+	require special configuration in the <code>asf-mailer.conf</code> file by the IPMC.

+	      <p>
+	      Mailing lists creation is a task for the <a href='#who-infra'>infrastructure team</a>. The

+	      to request a list.  A notification will be sent to private@incubator when the lists have been created.
+	      </p>
+	      <p>
+	      Remember to update the project status file with mailing list details. Prospective committers 
+	      and mentors will need to subscribe. Email them once the status file has been updated. Inform
+	      any existing mailing lists or forums previously used by the project.
+	      </p>
+	      <p>
+	      Once the <code>commits</code> list is created, the project MUST review
+	      the <code>/incubator/${podling}</code> tree, since any commits made prior
+	      to the list's creation will have generated no email trail.

-       Setting up git for a podling is simple. You open a JIRA to 
-       INFRA and request it.  You can either ask for a bare

-       The Foundation's policy 
-       is to grant access to git repositories broadly to the incubator group,
-       not narrowly podling-by-podling. So, once the repository
-       exists, incubator group members gain access without further work.  Once
-       the podling graduates, a dedicated ldap group will be created to manage
-       access and only those members will be given access.

-      If the podling chooses svn, you must create the 
-      repository and give read/write access to the repository
-      to all the committers for the podling. This involves requesting
-      new committer accounts and granting access to mentors and existing
-      Apache committers.

-      request, others can be set up by any IPMC members (typically mentors).
-      </p><p>

-      <a href='http://www.apache.org/dev/committers.html#mailing-list-moderators'>changed later</a>

-      though moderators may want to set up 
-      <a href='http://spamassassin.apache.org/'>spam filtering</a>.
-      Having at least three moderators is recommended to spread the load.
-      </p><p>
-      The proposal should contain the rest of the information that needs to be collected
-      before the mailing lists can be requested. Incubator is the responsible top level project.
-      So the domain <code>MUST</code> be <code>incubator.apache.org</code>.
-      For example:
-      </p>
-      <ul>
-      <li>dev@${podling}.incubator.apache.org</li>
-      <li>commits@${podling}.incubator.apache.org</li>
-      <li>private@${podling}.incubator.apache.org</li>
-      </ul>
-      <p>
-        For initial community building it is usually appropriate to only have
-        a "dev" list, to keep the discussions focussed. Later add a "user" list
-        if needed.
-      </p>
-      <note>
-Commits under <code>http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/<em>${podling}</em></code>

-      <p>
-      Mailing lists creation is a task for the <a href='#who-infra'>infrastructure team</a>. The
