that the mentors need to do?  For example, we think we've got the NOTICE and LICENSE files
done correctly, and the jars are in the correct place, the manifests for our jars have LICENSE
and NOTICE files in them, etc but does someone who knows more than we do actually check that
stuff out?  Who looks at the RAT output?

I will download a source package and a binary package. I'll do the following in my evaluation.

Check the signatures.
Unpack the source release.
Examine the NOTICE and LICENSE.
Build from Source - on a MacBook Air - the instructions should help me with all prerequisites.
Check the RAT report.
Compare the built from source package to the binary package.
Check NOTICE and LICENSE files in the manifests.

If all "looks good" I'll be able to vote +1 (binding).
You'll need three IPMC votes to make a release. Mentors are IPMC members. One is required
before moving on to the IPMC vote on general@i.a.o.

An estimate of how long it takes to (a) configure for a build and (b) to build would be helpful
to me scheduling this into my day.

I've seen that it has been pushed to the appropriate party.

Everyone leaves early on Friday if they show up at the office at all.
