Thanks Matei, I'll try and give it a look.

My recommendation is that we start to use the Incubator release doc/guide:

Note that there is a new method for publishing release candidates and
that uses SVNpubsub:

We should probably start using that. It will require a little back and
with infra but will be worth it in the end. If no one files the issue
by this evening Eastern time, I'll file it.

Alternatively, at the least, the release candidate should be
housed on Apache servers, e.g., in your p.a.o/public_html/ directory, along
with *.md5 *.asc and *.sha files, and perhaps a CHANGES.txt/change log.
Also (and this is all in the guide above) your release signing key
should be uploaded to and then it will appear here:

HTH and happy to help out as needed.
