Create the distribution using your favorite build tool e.g. Ant.
Create MD5 and SHA1 hashes of the distribution file.
Digitally sign the distribution, for example:
gpg --armor --output ClickIDE-X.X.X.zip.asc --detach-sig ClickIDE-X.X.X.zip
Upload the distribution to your account at people.apache.org

find . -type f | xargs chmod 664
chgrp -R click *
Verify the digital signatures at people.apache.org to
ensure nothing went wrong with the upload.
Please note if this is the first time you verify your key
at people.apache.org, you'll need to import your public
Assuming your public key ID is 'B51329CB' and your key is available
from the public key server 'pgp.mit.edu', the following command

gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys B51329CB
Next verify the signature with the following command: (Replace SUBPROJECT with the name of the actual project.)
gpg --verify SUBPROJECT-X.X.X.zip.asc SUBPROJECT-X.X.X.zip
