The 'How to ..' checklists on the wiki needs to be reviewed and updated -
Here are some of the things that should be include -
- Under 'How to Release' Add a checklist for release voting. It should include a steps for verify release (eg checksums, RAT check etc.). There's a section for RM to verify things before sending a vote. Most of those steps should be added to verifying release section. The release process could be overwhelming for a new RM. We should also recommend a new RM to request a PMC member as mentor for release process.
- Also under 'How to Release - Prerequisites', add a step for a formal DISCUSS thread to propose the release. It should be referenced in the release heads up mail.
- Add a role and responsibility section that defines Contributors, Committers and PPMC with their core project responsibilities. We can also include reviewing the project web site as a step in reporting. This way we'll have more periodic reviews to keep the page uptodate.
