Apache NiFi Release Guide
+The purpose of this document is to capture and describe the steps involved in producing 
+an official release of Apache NiFi.  It is written specifically to someone acting in the
+capacity of a [Release Manager][release-manager] (RM).  
+## Background Material
+- These documents are necessary for all committers to be familiar with
+ - [Apache License V2.0][apache-license]
+ - [Apache Legal License/Resolved][apache-legal-resolve]
+ - [Apache How-to Apply License][apache-license-apply]
+- These documents are necessary for someone acting as the RM
+ - [Apache Encryption Software / ECCN Info][apache-encryption]
+ - [Apache Release Policy][apache-release-policy]
+ - [Apache Release Guide][apache-release-guide]
+ - [Apache Incubator Release Guide][apache-incubator-release-guide]
+ - [another Apache Incubator Release Guide][another-apache-incubator-release-guide]
+ - [Apache Incubator Policy][apache-incubator-policy]

+ - [Apache PGP Info][apache-pgp]
+ - [Apache Release Signing][apache-release-signing]
+ - [Apache Guide to publish Maven Artifacts][apache-guide-publish-maven]
+## The Objective
+So with all the background material in mind and with the intent to perform
+a release established it is important to acknkowledge the objective here.
+The aim is to produce an official Apache release.  That means producing a legally
+valid and signed bundle of source code which one can download and build for themselves.
+The other items like prebuilt binaries of the full application are not the official
+release artifact they are conveniences for users who cannot readily build the application
+themselves.  The same is true then of maven artifacts published to Apache or
+mirrored artifact repositories.
