Subject [Couchdb Wiki] Update of "Release_Procedure" by NoahSlater
Date Sat, 30 Mar 2013 10:51:39 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "Release_Procedure" page has been changed by NoahSlater:

  Replace `CANDIDATE` with the candidate number.
- Change into this directory:
+ Copy the template file from the ``couchdb-admin` repository:
- {{{
+ {{{ 
- cd /tmp/couchdb/notes/VERSION/rc.CANDIDATE
+ cp ./notes/template.html /tmp/couchdb/notes/VERSION/rc.CANDIDATE/apache-couchdb-VERSION.html
- Create a new file:
+ Replace `VERSION` with the version you are releasing.
+ Replace `RELEASE` with the [[Roadmap_Process|type of release]] you are doing.
- {{{
- apache-couchdb-VERSION.html
- }}}
- Copy the format of previous release notes.
+ Go through the `CHANGES` file and copy each section and summary.
- Here's an example:
+ Open this file:
-     [[|apache-couchdb-1.2.0.html]]
+ {{{
+ email/request_notes.txt
+ }}}
- ''@@ A brief description of what CouchDB is, for the announcement emails.''
+ Copy the text from that file and send an email to the `` mailing list.
- ''@@ Add instructions on sending out [REQUEST] email for release notes.''
+ (You should replace values as necessary.)
- Go through the `NEWS` file and expand each bullet point as appropriate.
+ Once the notes have been expanded, and you have generated the release tag, come back to
this step.
+ Replace `TAG` in the html with the release tag you created.
  Check that this HTML looks good when used for a draft blog post.

  Now, follow these steps:
+  * Update the link to CHANGES in the release notes to correctly refer to the release tag.
   * Send a pre-announcement email to mailing list, so that downstream
distributors can prepare their own announcements.
   * Wait for all changes to be synced to public mirrors.
   * Update to point to the new files.
