We don't have different tool versions for bugfix releases, e.g there are 
no 4.11.0, 4.11.1, 4.11.2, ... tools. It is just 4.11. With the new 
number scheme, this is just 5.

No, not yet.

Could we please move this content from the wiki into a Git repository? 
Do we really need a separate repository for this release stuff? Could we 
move this into the RTEMS repository as a replacement for the Makefile.maint?

I don't know. I guess we have to figure this out and update the 
documentation/scripts accordingly.
