To make a release, follow the comprehensive HowToRelease documentation substituting hbase wherever core is mentioned.

See 15.3.3. Building the HBase tarball for how to build the hbase tarball.

Before the release, run the following smoke tests (at least).

Smoke Tests

Release candidate test matrix

Please also take a look at ReleaseCandidateTestMatrix and fill out as appropriate when folks report their test results. It is meant to be somewhat high-level as we want to encourage folks to test RCs, and having very strict guidelines on test may be discouraging to some folks who don't have a big setup, etc.
