You can see on this page the list of things to do for the release :

From this list, I think the following will be done by sysadmin team :

- sign ISOs
- fork cauldron tree directory on mirror to official tree
- clean testing repositories for stable tree
- make a copy in svn of the current svn tree ( svn cp ) to a branch
- clean history on binrepos svn
- add config for new release in youri
- unfreeze cauldron
- manage torrents files
- upload trees and isos on primary mirror on private directory

So I think we can prepare some scripts to do the following :
 - fork cauldron tree on mirrors to official tree and clean testing
 - create branch for each package (as discussed at last packagers meeting) :
     copied to
 - clean history on binrepos svn
 - sign ISOs

I plan to start those scripts this week (but you can help too). In this
directory :

And I think the following can also be useful if we have time :
 - see how we can have statistics about number of downloads using torrents
 - a script to check signature on all packages
 - a script to check for binary or debug packages with no src.rpm,
   or src.rpm with no binary packages in the tree

Do you see other things to do ?
