(niallp: Bug 18169 can be resolved if/when the new Validator 1.1.4 becomes a "GA" quality release - hopefully that will be in the next week or so. Is it worth waiting to include this - and the fix for show_bug.cgi?id=21760 Bug 21760 as well?)

(husted: Let's roll 1.2.6 and move onto 1.3.0, and fix it then.)

The Commons [http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/releases/prepare.html Preparation Guide] is a helpful preparation backgrounder, but Commons uses the "beta/release-candidate/final" process.

Likewise, the [http://httpd.apache.org/dev/release.html HTTPD Release Guidelines] is a helpful "overall process" backgrounder, but HTTPD does not use a test-build stage.
