Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache CouchDB 1.1.1 Release
Date Wed, 19 Oct 2011 21:50:40 GMT
Following the test procedure, I get as far as this command:

svn export

Obviously, we can't instruct people to do this any more, because we use Git.

What should we replace this step with?

We need a quick and painless way to check out the tag into a temporary

Ideally, whatever we recomend shouldn't rely on the user already having a
clone of the main repository.

Current suggestions from Paul:

git archive v1.2.9 | tar -C /tmp/new/path -xv

Problem: It requires you to do this from an existing clone, which will be a
pain to set up if you don't have one. And if you do have one, you will need
to make sure it is up to date. Lots of potential for problems, errors,
or hassle.

Problem: Requires you to substitute the commit hash of the tag, which will
be awkward and error prone.

Any other ideas?
