I was essentially bemoaning the fact that the release process still
has a large number of manual tools. The creation of releases is
pretty well scripted, but the other steps, such as gathering
signatures, announcing, posting the tarballs for download, and update
various links on the website, all still require a fair amount of
manual intervention. I've been meaning to get around to adding more
automation for months, but just haven't found the time (my excuse is
that I've been waiting for the move to ASF distribution infrastructure
for the 1.7 series).

I suspect that there would be a fair amount of magic involved in some
of these tasks, such as automatic website updating, but you're welcome
to dive in a give it a shot.

Best,

PS - It looks as if you're trying to get involved in Subversion
development, and are looking for a task to do. The best such list of
tasks is the 'bite-sized' tasks in the issue tracker:
