Dear Wiki user,

The "Release_procedure" page has been changed by NoahSlater.

--------------------------------------------------

  
  === Release Signing ===
  
- If you have not yet created a GPG public/private key pair, you will need to create one.
Creating a key pair is beyond the scope of this document, but the relevant Apache documentation
can be found at:
+ You will need a GPG key pair to sign the release.
  
+ If you do not have one already, see the Useful Resources section for more help.
-  * [[http://www.apache.org/dev/openpgp.html]]
-  * [[http://www.apache.org/dev/release-signing.html]]
-  * [[http://www.apache.org/info/verification.html]].
  
- The important points after creating your key are to make sure that it has been uploaded
to a public key server and that it gets added to [[http://www.apache.org/dist/couchdb/KEYS]].
Optionally, you should get your key signed so that it is part of the "web of trust." Google
around for key signing parties for more information about this.
+ It is generally better if your key is also signed by other people.
+ 
+ Your public key must be added to:
+ 
+  * http://www.apache.org/dist/couchdb/KEYS
+ 
+ You should also upload your key to a public key server for good measure.
  
  Edit Makefile.am so that `gpg` uses your key ID.
+ 
+ ''We should probably make this a command line option.''
  
  You can find your key ID by running:
  
  {{{
  gpg --list-keys
  }}}
