Subject RE: alpha3 release candidate 2 ready
Date Mon, 24 Feb 2003 20:38:48 GMT
Allow me to clarify.

Procedure as I perceive it, per the left over files:
* Make final changes to code for release, in local work tree.
* Commit all changes.
* Tag CVS for the release.
* Build the distribution from the local work tree.

Recommended procedure:
* Make final changes to code for release, in local work tree.
* Commit all changes.
* Tag CVS for the release.
* Check out a completely new clean tree based on the CVS tag created in
previous step.
* Build the distribution from this new clean tree.

The second approach has several advantages:

1) If you have forgotten to tag something in the tree, you will be
forcefully reminded, because the attempt to build the distribution will
fail.
2) Left-over files in a local work tree will not find their way into the
distribution.
3) You ensure that someone who decides to build the release from CVS can do
so successfully by simply retrieving the source based on the correct tag.

This is the approach I use for releasing Struts, Commons FileUpload and
Commons Validator.
