Subject [Couchdb Wiki] Trivial Update of "Windows_Binary_Packages" by DaveCottlehuber
Date Tue, 03 Apr 2012 23:34:33 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "Windows_Binary_Packages" page has been changed by DaveCottlehuber:
http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/Windows_Binary_Packages?action=diff&rev1=94&rev2=95

Comment:
tweaks following first mirror deployment

  
  This page details how Windows binaries are validated and voted on. Any Apache CouchDB committer
is free to make a binary package, but they are usually made by the committers. There is an
important distinction between regular packages and snapshot packages, namely:
  
-  * Regular packages must be built from an official source release tree-ish
+  * Packages to be distributed via the official Apache mirrors must be built from an official
source release or signed tag equivalent
  
-  * Snapshots may be provided at any time, from any tree-ish
+  * Snapshots may be provided at any time, from any tree-ish, but should be restricted to
personal Apache space or elsewhere
  
  Regular packages may be linked to from the CouchDB website, and promoted alongside the source
releases. Snapshot packages are for developers only, and will not be promoted. This distinction
ensures that the user community can rely on binary packages corresponding to source releases,
and that the developer community can test binary packages while not being obligated to maintain
or support them.

  After the source artefact vote is successful, three things must be updated:
  
-  * Approved binaries with sha/md5/asc keys to be moved into the official Apache CouchDB
{{{dist}}} environment.
+  * Approved binaries and sha/md5/asc keys to be moved into the official Apache CouchDB {{{/www/www.apache.org/dist/couchdb/binary/win32/x.y.z/}}}
environment
   * Subsequent update of CouchDB downloads page.
   * Once these are available on mirrors, the confirmation announcement can be sent.
