I thought I'd start things moving toward a release again.  I've been reading 
over the 2 URLs Kevan listed above and started working on a page in 
confluence for cutting a VCL release:

http://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/VCL/Cutting+a+VCL+Release

There's a concept of a "release manager" who is the person to spearhead 
getting a release cut and who takes care of signing (with GPG) the release.  
I'm willing to be this person this time around unless someone else would 
really like to.

Hopefully, the recently revived name discussion will get the project name 
established by the time everything else is ready for cutting a release.
