Once satisfied:
$ git commit releases.html -m "Add x.y.z release"
$ git commit releases.html -m "Add ${RELEASE_NUMBER} release"
$ git push
$ rsync -avz * wayland.freedesktop.org:/srv/wayland.freedesktop.org/www/

For x.y.0 releases, also create the x.y branch. The x.y branch is for
bug fixes and conservative changes to the x.y.0 release, and is where
we release x.y.z releases from. Creating the x.y branch opens up
master for new development and lets new development move on. We've
done this both after the x.y.0 release (to focus development on bug
fixing for the x.y.1 release for a little longer) or before the x.y.0
release (like we did with the 1.5.0 release, to unblock master
development early).
