Subject Ant Release Process
Date Thu, 28 Dec 2017 16:32:44 GMT
Hi

over in https://github.com/apache/ant/pull/54 Gintas is proposing to
automate some of the steps needed to cut a release of Ant that so far
have been performed manually. He's also ripping out the maven Ant task
stuff from fetch.xml and replacing it with Ivy, but that seems to be a
separate issue, it is just that automation becomes easier once fetch is
based on Ivy. At least that's my understanding of the situation, please
correct me if I'm wrong, Gintas.

For the last few releases I have been the release manager but this will
not always be the case so it won't be a good idea if I enforce my taste
here. In particular as I seem to be willing to suffer more than many
other people cutting releases - judging from the moaning about the
release process in Commons which involves far fewer steps than cutting a
release of Ant.

I'd ask you to look through the Release Process description[1] and look
for things that can and should be automated - assuming we can find a
reliable solution. Personally I prefer to stay in control at every
single step but maybe my level of paranoia is just wrong here.

Cheers

        Stefan
