Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-14162) Improve release scripts to automate missing steps
Date Wed, 08 Mar 2017 19:36:38 GMT
Elek, Marton created HADOOP-14162:

             Summary: Improve release scripts to automate missing steps
                 Key: HADOOP-14162
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-14162
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: build
            Reporter: Elek, Marton
            Assignee: Elek, Marton

According to the conversation on the dev mailing list one pain point of the release making
is that even with the latest create-release script a lot of steps are not automated.

This Jira is about creating a script which guides the release manager throw the proces:

  * It would work even without the apache infrastructure: with custom configuration (forked
repositories/alternative nexus), it would be possible to test the scripts even by a non-commiter.
  * every step which could be automated should be scripted (create git branches, build,...).
if something could be not automated there an explanation could be printed out, and wait for
  * Before dangerous steps (eg. bulk jira update) we can ask for confirmation and explain
  * The run should be idempontent (and there should be an option to continue the release from
any steps).
