 The release procedure consists of:
1. Preparing the release notes on trunk, merging them to,the branch
2. Creating a release tag based on the branch
3. Running the script on a Mac/Linux pc
4. manually verifying the tarballs generated by the script
5. uploading the tarballs
6. manually verifying SHA1 after upload
7. sending a relelase announcement mail is already updated to point to the new svn repo, and as far as I
can see in the code it should work fine.

This is of course only the act of creating and publishing the tarball, we
should add a voting step and define where/how to,upload the tarballs, wait
for sync to dist mirror ...

I can do a review of the serf 1.3.x changes, most of them are (still) fine
last I checked.
