+1 for ReleaseVerificationChecklist.

I think we need three pages, to cover three different areas of responsibility.

    1. ReleasePrep -- Actions to prepare a branch for a release (e.g. update
       the CHANGES file), for which the community is collectively responsible.
    2. ReleaseGuide -- Actions for executing a release, which are the sole
       responsibility of the Release Manager.  (DONE)
    3. ReleaseVerificationChecklist -- A guide for PMC members or other
       interested parties to help judge whether a specific set of release
       artifacts merits a +1 vote of approval.

To create the additional pages, we can distill down the Incubator release page
at <> as we did for
ReleaseGuide, but apply different filtering criteria.  After that, we can
augment the content with "run the unit tests like so..." as proposed above.
