Subject [Couchdb Wiki] Trivial Update of "Binary_Releases" by DaveCottlehuber
Date Fri, 10 Feb 2012 19:51:48 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "Binary_Releases" page has been changed by DaveCottlehuber:
http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/Binary_Releases?action=diff&rev1=83&rev2=84

  <<TableOfContents(2)>>
  
  = Introduction =
- 
  Following an official source vote, a Windows binary is created. The procedure for this is
documented in [[https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf?p=couchdb.git;a=blob;f=INSTALL.Windows;hb=HEAD|INSTALL.Windows]]
and a scripted approach is available in the appropriate branch of [[https://github.com/dch/glazier/|glazier]].
  
  After the binary is built, it is then [[http://www.apache.org/dev/release-signing.html#sign-release|signed]]
and uploaded to the appropriate committer's [[https://people.apache.org/~id|apache site]].
  
  The release manager will send a notice to the [[mailto:user@couchdb.apache.org|user@ mailing
list]], requesting a vote on the new artefact. This follows the general [[Release_procedure|CouchDB
release procedure]].

  Overall we are interested that the binary is malware free, correctly signed, and digests
match, and functionality matches that of the original source tarball.

   * Confirm using antivirus software there are no viruses or malware present. Microsoft provides
the free [[http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows/products/security-essentials|Security

   * Double-check `README`, `INSTALL.Windows`, `NEWS`, `LICENSE`, and `CHANGES` files are
present in {{{%COUCHDIR%/share/doc/couchdb/}}} and contents is appropriate. At present these
are gzipped but this should be fixed, and added as shortcuts.
   * If required, run the installer into a separate directory and start CouchDB via the provided
{{{couchdb.bat}}} script.
-  * Run Firefox >=4, launch Private Browsing mode, and disable caching by setting both
{{{browser.cache.disk.enable = false}}} and {{{network.http.use-cache = false}}} temporarily.

   * Use Futon to run the basic [[http://127.0.0.1:5984/_utils/verify_install.html|user verification]]
tests as well as the full [[http://127.0.0.1:5984/_utils/couch_tests.html?script/couch_tests.js|dev
test suite]].
   * Some tests may periodically depending on the speed of your PC and the phases of the moon.
It's fine to re-try a few times, or to test over LAN connection rather than localhost.
