Subject [Commons Wiki] Update of "CreatingReleases" by SiegfriedGoeschl
Date Wed, 25 Feb 2009 08:15:00 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Commons Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by SiegfriedGoeschl:

   * Make sure that there are no major bugs in JIRA
   * Make sure to add all missing committers and contributers
+ ==== B.2 Prepare Your Version Number ====
+ A guideline regarding version numbering can be found at []
- within Commons we reached the following consensus
+  * when your release a new major or minor version it comes without point release number,
e.g "foo-1.0.jar" or "foo-2.1.jar"
+  * when doing a bugfix release your need to add the point release number, e.g "foo-1.0.1.jar"
or "foo-2.1.1.jar"
- ==== B.2 Prepare Your Maven Variables ====
+ ==== B.3 Prepare Your Maven Variables ====
  During the staging process a directory is created on '''' based on the
content of the following Maven variables
@@ -108, +115 @@

- ==== B.4 Prepare Your Assembly Descriptors ====
+ ==== B.5 Prepare Your Assembly Descriptors ====
  If you are declaring/using your own assembly descriptors make sure that they are not using
${version} but ${commons.release.version} - there seems to be an odd bug which results in
an incorrectly expanded version string, e.g. {{{commons-exec-2.4.1-src}}}. If in doubt look
at {{{./src/assembly/src.xml}}}
- ==== B.5 Dry Run Your Maven Release ====
+ ==== B.6 Dry Run Your Maven Release ====
  Check that your poms will not lose content when they are rewritten during the release process.
