Sounds Good. I'll put out a proposal for the release, and we can go Over it and vote if we want to on releasing or on the scope. I'm +1 on it.
Broad strokes of what I'm thinking: - Checkout a new branch "features/multi-artifact-build-22xx" from master @ the `mahout-0.13.0` release tag. - Revert master back to release tag. - Checkout a new `develop` branch from master @the `mahout-0.13.0` release tag. - Cherrypick any commits that we'd like to release (E.g.: SparseSpeedup) onto `develop` (along with a PR ad a ticket). - Merge `develop` to `master`, run through Smoke tests, tag master @ `mahout-0.13.1`(automatically), and release. This will also get us to more of a git-flow workflow, as we've discussed moving towards.

We could release from the current master, or branch back off of the 0.13.0 tag, and release that with the upgraded defaults, and branch our current multi-artifact build off as a feature. Any thoughts on this? --andy
