you will also need to set up the release infrastructure (mirroring,
download page and so on)

i recommend setting this up first (yes, apache should have

it's worth investing a little time on creating a good download page.
for many potential users, this is the only page they are going to
read. so, it's worth adding information about OpenJPA on that page.
the same content as the release notes is fine.

the documentation is on the mirrors take
24-48 to sync so you need to hold off the announcement till they have
