I build releases with something like:

   ant -Dversion=1.4.3 clean dist

So that it doesn't matter what version is in build.xml.  So you 
shouldn't need to change build.xml for this release.

I think there is less confusion if, when folks build lucene themselves 
it does not, by default, have the same name as a released version.  Thus 
if they patch things and do not update build.xml (which is likely) the 
generated jar files will have "rc1-dev", clearly identifying them as a 
non-released version.

Yes.  Release directories should now be made under

Two other things that are not in the wiki instructions:
   1. copy the lucene jar into the distribution too
      cp build/lucene-X.X.jar dist
   2. compute MD5 sums
      (cd dist; md5sum lucene* > MD5.txt)

If you have time, please update the wiki instructions too.
