Check with ?KernelTeam for specials with the Kernel
- Check with d-i team for specials with this update
Check, if ReleaseNotes need to be updated. If yes, coordinate with translators
- Coordinate date with the FTP-Team
Notify the Debian-CD team of an upcoming ?PointRelease
- coordinate with d-i team for text for d-i changes
While the PointRelease
- Check with the FTP-Masters
- Need the d-i to be moved from p-u?

- Sign the release file
