There's no particular need for the KEYS file to be included in the RC,
particularly inside the release package (shipping the key along with
the signed package is kind of bad practice). One could simply update
the KEYS file directly in http://www.apache.org/dist/tika/KEYS and
upload it to a key server [1]. It's also a good idea to add the key
fingerprint to https://id.apache.org/.

Another thing that came to my mind is migration from
/www/www.apache.org/dist/tika on people.apache.org to svnpubsub-based
release distribution [2]. AFAIUI infra wants to get all projects
migrated to svnpubsub, so I think we should look at doing that shortly
after 1.3 is out. I can volunteer to take care of this as I've already
done it for Jackrabbit.
