Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3156) Document full release process
Date Sat, 20 Sep 2014 03:58:33 GMT


Corey J. Nolet commented on ACCUMULO-3156:

My nodes thus far:

Add the next version to JIRA.

A PGP key needs to be made. GnuPGP is one way to do this. More details can be found on the
Apache Guide for New Committers.

Once the key is made, you will need to use gpg-agent or something similar to cache your key
and credentials so that the maven gpg plugin can properly sign all the artifacts.

You will need to add your gpg public key to the keys file:

The following was placed in my settings.xml. Do this only if you are on a secure box. If not,
use the instructions from this link:

<!-- To publish a release -->

Go to the "Road Map" in JIRA under the Accumulo project and click on "Release Notes" under
the unreleased version in question. Note that this will give you open tickets as well. One
way to do this is to look @ all the open tickets for the version and remove them manually
from the release notes. Depending on the type of release, it's possible now could be a good
time to move the versions of the JIRA tickets to the next unreleased bugfix for the major
version line you are releasing.

Run the following commands to branch and release:

git co -b 1.6.2-SNAPSHOT

[19:44][cjnolet@coreys-mbp:/workspace/accumulo(1.6.2-SNAPSHOT)]$ git push -u origin 1.6.2-SNAPSHOT:1.6.2-SNAPSHOT
Total 0 (delta 0), reused 0 (delta 0)
 * [new branch]      1.6.2-SNAPSHOT -> 1.6.2-SNAPSHOT
Branch 1.6.2-SNAPSHOT set up to track remote branch 1.6.2-SNAPSHOT from origin.

[19:44][cjnolet@coreys-mbp:/workspace/accumulo(1.6.2-SNAPSHOT)]$ mvn release:prepare
