Is the GHC release process documented?

While writing a new nofib benchmark today I found myself wondering
whether all the nofib benchmarks are run just before each release,
which the drove me to go look for a document describing the release
process. A quick search didn't turn up anything, so I thought I'd ask
instead. Is there a documented GHC release process? Does it include
running nofib? If not, may I propose that we do so before each release
and compare the result to the previous release*.

* This likely means that nofib has to be run for the upcoming release
and the prior release each time a release is made, as numbers don't
translate well between machines so storing the results somewhere is
likely not that useful.
