There was a detailed page on how to make a release in the old wiki, I'm
trying to revive it.

I would assume the tp-gabble unit tests passed when the last release
was made.

As for the D-Bus spec, it is as unmaintained as tp-glib/gabble, the
maintainership should probably pass to the people working around TpQt
as this is were the activity seems to be these days.
