Hi Aaron, I can take this up. Please give me a signal when you feel that How-To-Release wiki page is up to date. I have already started going through this page. As I am doing Apache release first time so might need help from your side :)

Ok. I have reviewed and edited the http://wiki.apache.org/blur/HowToRelease instructions. There are a couple of sections that still need to be written down. However those are after a successful vote, so we have a few days.
Let us know if you need help or have questions. Thanks!

basically though it's 1) call the vote on dev list, min 72hours, if that passes 2) call the vote on incubator general, if that passes (wait another 72hrs, min 3 IPMC +1's, regular rules re release vote (the vote needs to pass)) then you're ready to roll.
However I think that I need to setup (or have setup) something in https://repository.apache.org/ so that we can stage and push our artifacts. Do you know what the process is here or can point me to a doc? I have done a quick look in JIRA for other requests and did not find any. I will continue to look for more information.

Where are you in the process? Assuming that you are at the beginning you will need to download and install a PGP tool. I'm on OSX so I used https://gpgtools.org/. Make sure you follow these instructions:
Hey Gagan, The page Aaron linked to has tons of details but you need to publish your keys to a keyserver (e.g. mit) - something like '--send-key' if you're using gpg. Do you live near any other committers who can sign your key?
Hi Tim, I tried to connect with some committer near by. But got reply that this is possible only after personal meeting. He recommended to get it signed is some upcoming cloud stack. Is it required for release as I have uploaded public key to MIT server. I will sign jars with the private key I am having and anybody can use this with public key I have uploaded.

Hi Gagan, That's why I suggested you find a local committer:) Is anyone in range that you could meetup for a beer or coffee? Most folks (myself included) will want to see some in-person identification before signing a key. Technically, maybe there's no requirement to be linked into the WoT but it's surely the best thing for the project to have trusted releases. I'm not sure what to say, I hate to turn down an eager Release Manager - hopefully you can find some spare time to meetup with someone? :)
- Update the how to release wiki page with the feedback that Patrick provided earlier in this thread. - Figure out how to deploy the Blur artifacts into the maven repository ( https://repository.apache.org/index.html)
I will take a look at the maven repo stuff tonight.
