Subject [Couchdb Wiki] Update of "Release_Procedure" by NoahSlater
Date Thu, 10 Jan 2013 22:16:00 GMT

The "Release_Procedure" page has been changed by NoahSlater:

  A vote can only pass if there are at least three +1 votes. These votes can come from anyone,
including non-committers, and in fact, everyone is encouraged to partake in and vote on each
release. However, it is preferable that at least three +1 votes come from the committers,
or better yet, the PMC. Once three +1 votes have been counted, the vote can pass. However,
if anyone votes -1 or expresses any serious concern, that should be addressed. Usually, this
will be cause to abort the vote. A vote can only be closed after three working days. This
allows most people a chance to test and vote on the release.
+ = Preparing the Binary packages =
+ At this point in the process, you should reach out to the following people:
+  * Dave Cottlehuber <> (Windows)
+  * Hans J Schroeder <> (Mac OS X)
+ Ideally, both people would have been involved in the vote thread.
+ Either way, ask them both to prepare binary packages for the release artefacts.
+ If these are done in time, they can be mentioned in the release announcement.
  = Preparing the Release Notes =
  Go through the `NEWS` file and expand each bullet point as appropriate.
