For the majority of people, here's a summary of what you need to know (and do) between now and the release date of 6/25:

1.        Clean up old builds on downloads and move previous releases to archives.
2.        Provide data for Infocenter docs, for bug 436372.
3.        Put your final bits in their final resting places, with their final names, early -- during quiet week -- but don't advertise them, and don't make "visible" to the world. Be sure to change, correct or add metadata -- such as download.php mirror URLs -- so they are correct for final location and names.
4.        On official release day, Wednesday, June 25, check cross-project list approximately 9 AM Eastern to make sure there is no "Wait!" message. Once you see a "Go" message, you're free to advertise your release and make visible to the world. (And, while your thinking of it, just as well update Foundation's metadata to change "planned" to "completed", etc.)
5.        Keep an eye open for a few hours to make sure no reports of "bad things happening", but otherwise Blog, Tweet, Celebrate!

Thanks for that abbreviated version, David.  It all looks good to me.
