10. cd EMACS_ROOT_DIR; bzr tag TAG
TAG is EMACS_PRETEST_XX_YY_ZZZ for a pretest, EMACS_XX_YY for a
release.
Shortly before the release, cut the branch with the following commands:
cvs rtag EMACS_`NUMBER'_BASE
cvs rtag -b EMACS_`NUMBER'_RC -r EMACS_`NUMBER'_BASE
where `NUMBER' is the major version number of the release. This
makes it easier to see what changes have been applied to the
branch with:
cvs diff -r EMACS_`NUMBER'_BASE -r EMACS_`NUMBER'_RC
or merge changes back to the trunk with "cvs update -j", if
necessary.
After doing this, increase the version number on the trunk as per
step 4.

for instructions. Once you are there, for each file FILE to be
released, create a detached GPG binary signature and a clearsigned
directive file like this:
for instructions.
You can use the gnupload script to upload each FILE, like this:
gnupload --to alpha.gnu.org:emacs/pretest FILE (for a pretest)
gnupload --to ftp.gnu.org:emacs FILE (for a release)
Instead of using gnupload, for each FILE, create a detached GPG
binary signature and a clearsigned directive file like this:
gpg -b FILE
echo directory: emacs/pretest > FILE.directive (for a pretest)
echo directory: emacs > FILE.directive (for a release)
