Of course you mean *prepare* the update, aren't you? ;-)

I'll takeover this part and try to deliver first things on Sunday.

I don't know if I can bring in some more automatism for the releade (DL 
links in the table, with checksums, etc.) but maybe then short after.

Yes. IMHO we should change this earliest with 3.5 when we can offer some 
new features. But latestly 4.0 is the time to delete the legacy website 
stuff and point the users to the archive when there is still need for 
the last OOo release.
