Either you vote or you don't, everything else is considered advisory,
you know that. The release packages that most people in practice will
use contain -incubating in the file name. I don't know what could be
any more explicit. Anyhow, we'll add a file for the next release.

Maven (the project) has super clear step-by-step instructions at
http://maven.apache.org/developers/release/apache-release.html for
releasing with Maven (kudos to Maven guys for that!) which I followed
religiously. Maybe you could write another one for Maven-based podling
releases but I'm not sure it's worth it. Most of the pain we (Shiro)
experienced was with the website - these rules are really not clear
and there's a million different competing technologies to put together
a project website. Unless incubator starts dictating the technologies
to use for a podling website (which I'd be strongly against), I don't
see how one could write up a *simple* checklist. It's worth an effort
to clarify the http://incubator.apache.org/guides/releasemanagement.html
page though. Whatever the technology, I'd much rather improve
something existing than whip up yet another semi-official Confluence
page.
