The following is missing:

1. At which point in time the Maven artifacts are being released from
the staging repository, and how?

I guess you do it it shortly after "svn mv dev->release", a day before
the announcement.

https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/tomcat/tc7.0.x/trunk/res/maven/README.txt
says
[[[
3 - include the repository in the VOTE thread
4 - in https://repository.apache.org/index.html#stagingRepositories release it
]]]

I think 4 actually releases the artifacts. (Thus a step is missing:
wait for the vote to pass).

2. Bump version number preparing for the next release.
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=revision&revision=1500094

3. Add release date to changelog.xml
(The same date as in announcement at tomcat.apache.org/index.html)
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=revision&revision=1500008

4. Add version number in Bugzilla.
