Yuri,

I started writing up the 'procedure' here:
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/WAVE/Release+Procedure It
needs updating now that we use git rather than svn.

If we could get jenkins building the releases that would be great!
(wave-artifacts doesn't seem to be generating the src releases?)

Once the artifacts are made (ant release, or equivalent), then the
next step is to manually verify the contents are as expected, and to
sign it.
I have a very small script to sign all the files using my key, and to
generate the SHA512 sums for the files: http://pastebin.com/05wBkWd1

Once that is done, send it to the wave list to vote upon...
Once that is done, send it to the incubator list to vote upon...
Once that is done, release! ;)

Ali
