Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-2394) Create release notes
Date Sun, 23 Feb 2014 02:27:19 GMT


Josh Elser commented on ACCUMULO-2394:

I had some down time today, so I started poking around. Made a basic release notes Jekyll
site. I like it because all it requires is making a new markdown/html file named
(e.g., and it will automatically update a new website with the content.

The index page shows the most recent releases first, and allows you to directly link to a
specific version. I made enough style changes to make it not completely ugly, and the content
is all lorem ipsums, but it should convey the idea.

I like the idea of keeping this in the main source tree (use/write a quick maven-jekyll-plugin
or just exec out to the command line), but that would introduce more effort to get it into
the ASF CMS. Not entirely sure, but I wanted to at least start it out.

> The big point that came out of the massive discussion on the CHANGES file is that we
should also be generating an easy-to-consume release notes page.
> Ideally, we want something visually appealing, easy for us to maintain, version controlled
and not requiring manual HTML (e.g. Markdown, etc).
