Ok, I can try to help with that as time allows. Are there written
instructions on the mechanics of how to use SourceForge to make a
package release? I know how to make a tag and can probably figure out
how to upload a tarball. But what about the HTML docs? Adding to the
"Recent news" lists? Any other steps needed?

Same. Looks like a lot of people have contributed to doing peer review
of pending package releases so far, that's very encouraging.
