For now, this issue is just a place to dump ideas as they occur to me. No need to implement yet.

Prepare for release:

* [ ] `devtools::check_win_devel()`
* [ ] `rhub::check_for_cran()`
* [ ] `revdepcheck::revdep_check(num_workers = 4)`
* [ ] [Polish NEWS](http://style.tidyverse.org/news.html#before-release)
* [ ] If new failures, update `email.yml` then `revdepcheck::revdep_email_maintainers()`

Perform release:

* [ ] Create RC branch (for bigger releases)
* [ ] Bump version (in DESCRIPTION and NEWS)
* [ ] `devtools::check_win_devel()` (again!)
* [ ] `devtools::submit_cran()`
* [ ] `pkgdown::build_site()`
* [ ] Approve email

Wait for CRAN...

* [ ] Tag release
* [ ] Merge RC back to master branch
* [ ] Bump dev version
* [ ] Write blog post
* [ ] Tweet
* [ ] Add link to blog post in pkgdown news menu

Maybe with variation for first release?

* [ ] Check that description is informative
* [ ] Check licensing of included files

Would it work to add "Write blog post" after "Polish news", and replace current "Write blog post" with "Refine blog post"? Some bugs (and clumsy APIs) are revealed only when writing the blog post.

Do we need to add "Run devtools::document()" just in case? The pkgdown::build_site() call does take care of it, but that's too late.

Also perhaps: "Verify test coverage". Reduced coverage can be a hint for a subtle bug.
