$ mkdir -p repos/dist/release/incubator/netbeans

$ cd repos/dist/release/incubator/netbeans

$ svn checkout

Then move the candidate to the release area:

$ svn move $RELEASE/repos/dist/dev/incubator/netbeans/<candidate> .

And then commit the move:

$cd $RELEASE/repos/dist

$ svn commit -m "<commitmessage>" dev/incubator/netbeans/ release/incubator/netbeans/
