[OpenLayers-Dev] Releasing Tools

Here is the process I followed for the technical steps of performing the release:

 1. svn co http://svn.openlayers.org/trunk/openlayers/
 2. cd tools
 3. ./branch.sh 2.11 # (creates the branch)
 4. ./rc.sh 2.11 rc1 # changes version numbers, creates the tag -- two commits
 5. ./release.sh 2.11 # Prepares the download, runs naturaldocs, creates htdocs directories

The only part of this that isn't auto-scriptified is the "make 2.11 the official /api/ release",
but doing that by hand (I'll document how when I get there :)) is probably still sane.

This doesn't have any trac interactions, so creating the new version, etc. still has to be
done manually; does anyone have any interest in poking at that? I don't know how to remotely
admin trac.
