A few comments on this...

1. There is a lot of good information in HowToRelease that should not go to waste. I'm refactoring it now and should be *much* better.

2. We actually need two documents. One of them is for release testers and managers, and the other is for the public. The former tells about the whole process, the people that do it, how to do it, what do we expect, etc. The latter tells about the schedules, time it takes, process to report a bug from outside and the kind of bug we mark as release blocker.

3. The test-suite is *still* not being done by the test-release script, nor by just running "make test-suite", so we can't remove the LIT part yet. For ARM and AArch64, I *always* run the test-suite, and I seriously recommend every release tester to do the same, so until the way we wan just use make/ninja, we need the info here.
