Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Release Apache Edgent 1.2.0 (incubating)
Date Mon, 06 Nov 2017 21:25:59 GMT
Hi All,

So, you might have noticed, I just bumped the version of develop to 1.3.0-SNAPSHOT and now
there is a “release/1.2” branch. Also, the Multibranch pipeline on Jenkins kicked in nicely
and almost instantly setup a new build job for the release branch. Both the bumped develop
as well as the release branch built nicely. 

Just tell me, if anything else needs to go in the release. I think we could initiate the real
release in a few days, if you agree.

In develop I’m writing a step by step guide about all the steps the how’s and why’s
and will commit that once it’s finished.

    +1, I like the process.
    If I understand correctly, all development work is now happening on the
    develop branch, and therefore master is only ever updated when a new
    release is created.
