It is OK to make the tarball after giving PR go-ahead.  So I suggest

 3. Select the release date.

 4. Obtain a formal go-ahead from
      - the Community Manager
      - the Release Technician: ask them to dry-run their checklist
        and confirm everything is OK.

 5. Give PR Personnel go-ahead, and instruct Technician to make
    release deliverables.  (Release deliverables - tags and
    tarballs - will usually be in place the day before the release.)
