We need to work out and document the exact procedures needed to make a Jikes RVM release now that we have switched to mercurial.
It isn't that different, but some of the details have changed.
(a) What's the proper way and timing in the steps of the process to create the branch?
(b) Are there changes in how the userguide import is done?
(c) Are there changes in how the rvm version is made in build.xml?
(d) Tweaks to scripts as needed.
The documentation to update lives here: http://docs.codehaus.org/display/RVM/Making+a+Release
bulk defer to 3.1.3
bulk close of all resolved issues in preparation for 3.1.3 release.
