Subject [Cordova Wiki] Update of "CuttingReleases" by AndrewGrieve
Date Fri, 26 Oct 2012 17:52:54 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "CuttingReleases" page has been changed by AndrewGrieve:
http://wiki.apache.org/cordova/CuttingReleases?action=diff&rev1=13&rev2=14

  
  We have recently, in the past year or so, started tagging Release Candidates about a week
before the expected ship for minor release (such as 1.5.0rc1) which tends to tease out more
bugs and avoid the embarrassing patch release. (1.4.1 comes to mind.)
  
+ === Tagging ===
+ 
+ Example git flow to create a tag:
+ {{{
+ git fetch cordova # Fetch tags
+ git tag 2.2.0rc1 # Tag locally
+ git push cordova master --tag # Push tags
+ }}}
+ 
+ When going through the tagging process, sometimes bugs are found and fixed before the release
candidate is even created. In this case, it's fine to change the tags via:
+ {{{
+ git fetch cordova # Fetch tags
+ git tag --force 2.2.0rc1 # Re-tag locally
+ git push cordova master --tag # Push tags
+ }}}
+ 
+ Once a release is created though (meaning a .zip file has been uploaded), tags should not
be changed.
