Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-2771) Add new contributor instructions for RC participation
Date Fri, 02 May 2014 18:56:15 GMT

Sean Busbey commented on ACCUMULO-2771:
---------------------------------------

This is the email template I usually use to try to prod people and provide some extremely
basic guidance. I think we could adapt this as a starting point for a purely manual version.

If you have time in the next few hours, I'd love it if you provided a non-binding vote on
the Accumulo $\{version} RC$\{rc number}.

Vote thread (includes links for downloading candidate, signatures, hashes):

$\{link to rc vote}

ASF guide on running gpg to verify signatures:

http://www.apache.org/dev/release-signing.html#verifying-signature

The Accumulo release governance page explains how to run the unit and integration tests:

http://accumulo.apache.org/governance/releasing.html#stand-alone

Note that all you need to do when voting is signature and hash checking. Running any of the
tests is just a bonus. The vote closes at $\{vote close datetime}.

If I can answer any other questions to help you get the information you need to vote, let
me know!

> I'd like to lower the bar to entry on getting new contributors to participate in the
release process. We need some docs that provide step-by-step guidelines
> * Minimum work needed to participate (i.e. hash/signature/license verification)
> * Relative benefit of other testing
> * What to include in the vote message
