I think you misunderstand what "release" means, here. When you do an "ant
release" for Tomcat, you are building a complete release for voting and
ultimately, publication. If you aren't a Tomcat committer, there's really no
reason to be running "ant release" unless a) you intend to actually build a set
of release-quality artifacts for Tomcat and b) you know what you are doing.

Using "ant -projecthelp" has this to say about the "release" target:
 release                          Create a Tomcat packaged distribution

The default target is "deploy", which says this:
 deploy                           Default. Builds a working Tomcat instance

I'm pretty sure that's what you are looking for.

Why is an "end user" trying to do a release build, anyway?
