gpg --import KEYS

# [optional] Clear out local maven artifact repository

# Pull down nifi-nar-maven-plugin-1.3.1 source release artifacts for review:


# Verify the signature
gpg --verify -v

# Verify the hashes (sha256, sha512) match the source and what was
provided in the vote email thread
shasum -a 256
shasum -a 512

# Unzip

# Verify the build works including release audit tool (RAT) checks
cd nifi-nar-maven-plugin-1.3.1
mvn clean install -Pcontrib-check

# Verify the contents contain a good README, NOTICE, and LICENSE.

# Verify the git commit ID is correct

# Verify the RC was branched off the correct git commit ID

# Verify that NiFi can build NARs correctly using the plugin

services, and reporting tasks

- Spot check a few NARs to ensure they include

cd /tmp
unzip nifi-xyz-bundle.nar
