Dear Wiki user,

The following page has been changed by MyrnavanLunteren:
http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/DerbySnapshotOrRelease

   1. Fix the bugs, update STATUS and CHANGES as needed
  
-   Get to work! Add features, fix bugs, and update STATUS and CHANGES as you go. The wiki
is nice, as are personal webpages, but STATUS and CHANGES are the designated place for Apache
projects to keep their current status. Apache members and committers expect to be able to
grab the STATUS file from the code tree to determine the current status of the project. It's
a nice thing to keep the STATUS file on branches up to date with the current status of the
branch.

STATUS file on branches up to date with the current status of the branch. The other essential
document is a document describing the changes. Derby branches up to 10.2 included a file 'CHANGES'
for that purpose; 10.3 branch and trunk have a RELEASE_NOTES.html checked in. RELEASE_NOTES.html
is generated using the generator in <10.3 branch and up/trunk>/java/build/org/apache/derbyBuild/ReleaseNotesGenerator.java.
  
   1. Drive the bug list to zero.
  
-   As the list of remaining bugs in JIRA approaches zero, be sure to mark their status properly
in JIRA. Mark blocker and critical bugs as such so that others can see the status at a glance.
Move non-showstopper bugs out to future releases if it appears they will not be fixed for
this release.

+  1. Drive the creation of release notes.
+   The release note generator expects files called 'ReleaseNote.html' for each item marked
that is:
+     - resolved to 'Fixed'
+     - fixed in the release under study but not in the previous release
+     - marked with 'Existing Application Impact' or 'Release Note Needed'.

    TODO: the regex.masters target does not currently account for changes in the beta flag.
If you are creating the first release off of a new branch, do not forget to set the beta flag
in tools/ant/properties/release.properties to false.
  
- 
-   Finalize any comments added to CHANGES, so that you do not need to alter the file before
you are ready to build. Check in the updated files.  
  
   1. Generate RELEASE_NOTES.html in the branch and check it into the svn repository.
