There is a general panic that occurs whenever we do a release: source, 
binaries, zips, debs, rpms's, md5sums, freshmeat, etc, etc, etc.  Invariably 
something, or several somethings, gets forgotten.

In light of this, it is perhaps time to document the release process a bit 
better, so that we all know what needs to be done, in what order.  It's 
certainly starting to get beyond what I can keep in my head.

At the following place is a draft of the release process:

Feel free to make suggestions, volunteer to take over responsibility for 
certain steps, etc.  Even add other packages (dgee, qt#, etc) if you like so 
that we can co-ordinate better across team lines.

The important point is that we document the processes involved in sufficient 
detail that the average hamster can perform them in a pinch if someone has an 
emergency all of a sudden and can't build the rpm's or something.
