I think we should build a release candidate in incubator and then
vote on releasing the jars as 0.9.x.  At that point, we should vote
on graduation and request a TLP from the board.

Jukka, I encourage you to produce a few incubating release builds
as version 0.9.x as soon as you feel like that would be productive.
We need to start working on the versioning rules and, since we are
a library, it will need to be clear that there will be no incompatible
interface changes in the 1.x series.  We should run some tools on the
release package to be sure the public API is clean enough for use
by other projects.
