I have updated the release documentation for the 1.4.0 stream.
There is also a guide on how to run cite tests as well.
svn copy https://svn.codehaus.org/geoserver/trunk
If someone has some time to kill it would be great to have someone run
through them and release 1.4.0-M1. I will be travelling the next few
days so if noone gets to it I will finish it off next week and time the
release with the geotools 2.2.0 release.
