Great ideas so far.
I would suggest to split the content into two documents as they address
different people:

the release process could go into a file called 'making-a-release' as
we already have it for Geany (thanks to Nick). This file is mostly
useful for the release manager, aka Chow.

The writing a plugin howto stuff could go into some file like
'plugin-guidelines' or just HACKING. Or whatever you prefer :).

Just my 2 cents,
