Release Manager's Checklist

Introduction

Historically, items on this checklist were accomplished by scripts written in Perl, Python, Bash, C++, and as Windows command files, or by point-and-click on a FrontPage or other GUI based program. Long term the plan is to move as much as possible of these to C++, as the one language all Boost developers are comfortable with.

Pre-release activities

These procedures are given for a particular release manager's machine. The plan is to replace them with more generic procedures over time.
