I don't see that the JavaDoc's affect the sources, but:

- What I usually do as a RM is
  * Cut an SVN tag, like VXQuery-0.2-rc2.
  * Prepare source and binary distributions from that tag.
    (The maven-release-plugin possibly allows to combine these steps into one.)
  * Run the vote.
  * If the vote succeeds, rename the tag to, say, VXQuery-0.2. The
tags for unsuccessful rc's remain.

that contain no surprises? Is there a controlled build environment somewhere that we can use?

I recommend uploading everything to, including
source and binary distributions. Again, the maven-release-plugin can
do that for you. After the vote, "publish" those artifacts and
everything's fine.

To be honest, that's simply what I do, and I'm quite certain that a
lot of people do it differently. If you have questions left, maybe we
can have a phone call, or a Google hangout at some point.
