I've been thinking about this some and would like to extend this
suggestion with a two week QA process.

I believe it would be relatively simple to setup a continues running
setup of OpenDNSSEC on all build platforms, this would be a separate
installation of OpenDNSSEC running signing on a few example zones.
Jenkins could then be used to poke at OpenDNSSEC with normal
operations like adding and deleting zones, resigning and key rollovers
(I would need help writing these test cases).

The process it would look something like this.
- if any step fails we start over
- if any changes are needed we start over, increase rc

* Can we release 1.3.7
* Tag 1.3.7rc1, tarball, upload to site
* Announce, link + checksum
* Switch continues running setup (CRS) to tag 1.3.7rc1
* Wait 2 weeks
* Copy tag 1.3.7rc1 to 1.3.7qa1 (or plain 1.3.7, but a QA tag might be nice)
* Announce, link + checksum
