---------------------------------------

             Summary: Release guide ambigous regarding release branches
                 Key: FLINK-9747
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-9747
             Project: Flink
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Chesnay Schepler


The release guide contains a dedicated section to [Create a release branch|https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/FLINK/Creating+a+Flink+Release#CreatingaFlinkRelease-Createareleasebranch].

Yet, the first step in the [Build a release candidate|https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/FLINK/Creating+a+Flink+Release#CreatingaFlinkRelease-Buildareleasecandidate] is to create another release branch.
{code}
Now, create a release branch:

$ cd tools
tools $ OLD_VERSION=$CURRENT_SNAPSHOT_VERSION NEW_VERSION=$RELEASE_VERSION RELEASE_CANDIDATE=$RC_NUM releasing/create_release_branch.sh
{code}

We should use different terms, as the first is about _snapshot_-release-branches (like release-1.5), the latter about the branches actually used for a specific release (like release-1.5.0-rc1).
