If we update the incubation release process guide to include all the
requirements for a release then you won't have to repeat yourself and
other podlings will know whats required causing less frustration
alround.

Though its clearly a touchy subject so I went ahead and did it for you
:). FWIW I just added a link to the release guide you provided in the
release section (Incubation_Policy.html).

Incidentally there are useful bits of documentation on performing
releases in the documentation/wikis of various projects at Apache.
I've hacked up a quick wiki page to collect them..

http://wiki.apache.org/general/ReleaseGuides

and added the links you provided along with adding some of the release
guides I could think off off the top of my head (e.g. ActiveMQ and
Struts).

If anyone is aware of any other useful information on release
processes and requirements it'd be good to add to these 2 pages.
