I don't think this is set down anywhere, but this is roughly how it
goes. I'm sure someone will correct me if I get anything wrong.

Once your review manager has given you the go ahead you can add it to
trunk. It's a good idea to do this as soon as possible so you can add
it to the regression tests. When you feel you're ready for release you
should contact the release managers (which I think is best done on the
development list, so other people know what's going on, although
further release discussion is usually off list to reduce noise). We
have a checklist that your library needs to meet before it can be
merged to the release branch:

Some items are things that we take care of (such as adding to the
website). You can be included in a release if your library is ready by
the deadline for new libraries (usually 7 weeks before release, in the
past we've been lenient if we cause a library to miss the deadline but
I think that depends on the nature of the library).
