I have a script setup for the avalon project(s) so that "releasing" is as 
simple as 
* run a script
* come back in ten minutes and edit jakarta-site and do mail out
* bump version in build.xml

The script builds distribution, signs the distribution, constructs 
HEADER.html + README.html and uploads it to appropriate directory on jakarta, 
tag CVS module, and creates a basic announcement message.

It took me a full 30 minutes to do a release and 20 of those I spent making 
toast ;)

So as long as the CVS is kept in nice clean state and experimentation is done 
in proposals dir (or as a branch) then it would be simple to do. If it would 
make it more likely to make releases more often then I will see what I can do 
to convert it to ant tasks or make it portable (currently it is specific to 
bash + gpg + ssh with keys).
