Subject Re: Simplifying the Release feature
Date Mon, 22 Jun 2009 01:36:08 GMT
One might even wonder why there would be a need for 2 full builds to
happen for the release (one for the prepare and one for the perform). In
combining steps, it might even be worth skipping the "prepare" build and
execute the perform one from the tag directly.
