Subject [Couchdb Wiki] Update of "Release_Procedure" by NoahSlater
Date Tue, 09 Apr 2013 19:23:19 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:
http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/Release_Procedure?action=diff&rev1=207&rev2=208

  
  Publish the blog post.
  
- Copy the text version of the release notes into an email, and send to the following lists:
+ Copy the text version of the release notes into an email.
+ 
+ Remove the title from the text, and replace it with:
+ 
+ {{{
+ Dear Community,
+ }}}
+ 
+ Remove any hard line wraps, including in the list of changes.
+ 
+ Sign the email with:
+ 
+ {{{
+ On behalf of the CouchDB PMC,
+ }}}
+ 
+ The subject should be:
+ 
+ {{{
+ [ANNOUNCE] Apache CouchDB VERSION released
+ }}}
+ 
+ Replace `VERSION` with the version you are releasing.
+ 
+ Then send to the following lists:
  
   * announce@apache.org
   * announce@couchdb.apache.org
   * user@couchdb.apache.org
   * dev@couchdb.apache.org
  
- The subject should be:
+ ''@@ Move most of this into a template email.''
  
+ At each stage of the actual release, it is expected that a person can follow the trail of
changes back to the source. Because most of these systems are slow, things must be done in
the correct order. It would be unfortunate if the website listed a release that was not available
on a local mirror, or that was missing a corresponding tag in the Git repository. The changes
should always propagate from the source, to the `dist` directory, to the mirrors, to the website,
and finally to the actual release announcement.
- {{{
- [ANNOUNCE] Apache CouchDB VERSION released
