Here are 3 patches to improve the release process.

I've already pushed (without sending it for review) a trivial patch
that just bump the release version from 0004-rc1 to 0004-rc2, so this
is already taken care of.

In addition, the following patch contains some TODO:
    ac585ac Add a README documenting the release process
They are to be replaced by the final commit IDs of the releasetag.sh
patch like that:
    04f0014 releasetag.sh: tag all repositories

As the commit message can be modified with Acks, the commit ID can
potentially change.

In addition to the patches that will follow in a response to
this mail, here's an URL to the see the patches in a web interface:

And here's how to get them in a git repository:
git clone https://git.replicant.us/GNUtoo/release-scripts
cd release-scripts
git show ac585ace9c217258dee1d34f5b6b538e7c96a617
