(stefan's been hanging around recently so hopefully he'll correct me when 
i go wrong.)


you'll need a release manager. the release will need to be prepared and a 
release VOTE won (as per usual). please remember to cc the jakarta pmc for 
the release VOTE. all the releasables need md5 sums and openpgp compatible 
signatures creating. it's recommended that the release manager use a 
separate (code signing) key for this. (this may require learning how gnugp 
or pgp works.)
