Hmm...  Personally, I think "for release" is just a list of activities
that must be completed before the next release, but "release process" or
"release cycle" is throughout Emacs development.  Since English is not
my native language, my feeling could be wrong.

OK.  I can change it if no one disagrees.

Well, I mean _build and upload_ the binary.  Maybe Someoneā„¢ familiar
with Windows should write a script to build a Windows binary for release
