New page:
The following steps are required to create and deploy a release version of the HttpClient
library package. The example text consistently assumes that we are releasing version 3.0.1
of the package.

== Pre Release ==

   * Announce your proposed release to the httpcomponents-dev@jakarta.apache.org mailing list,
and ask for a vote. Per the Jakarta Project charter, votes of Jakarta PMC members are considered

   * Assuming the vote is successful send an email to httpcomponents-dev@jakarta.apache.org
and private@jakarta.apache.org with the outcome of the vote. Something like the following:
Subject: [VOTE][RESULT] Commons HttpClient 3.0.1 released

The vote to release Commons HttpClient 3.0.1 has passed with
the following results


Michael Becke <mbecke -at- apache.org>
Ortwin Gl├╝ck <oglueck -at- apache.org>
Oleg Kalnichevski <olegk -at- apache.org>
Roland Weber <rolandw -at- apache.org>

Original thread:

== Building the Release ==

=== Documentation ===

   * Update release_notes.txt - This file should be updated when patches are committed, but
sometimes is not. Be sure all relevant changes since the last release are included. This file
should be published along with the release source and binary distributions.  

   * Update the project version number.
    * build.xml - change the property '''component.version'''
    * project.xml - change '''<currentVersion/>''' and add a '''<version/>'''
    * src/java/org/apache/commons/httpclient/params/DefaultHttpParamsFactory.java - update
the useragent string
    * doap_httpclient.rdf - update the '''<release>''' section

   * Update project site documentation.
    * xdocs/status.xml - change the current status text, the link to next release bugs, and
the release info link
    * xdocs/downloads.xml - change the release number and date and the Maven dependency xml
    * xdocs/news.xml - add a news item for the release.  This can be reused in the announcement
email and the Jakarta site news.

   * Make sure you have at least version 1.10 of the maven-xdoc-plugin as previous versions
are affected by a [http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MPXDOC-186 bug]. If not, update:
     `maven plugin:download -DartifactId=maven-xdoc-plugin -DgroupId=maven -Dversion=1.10`
   * Generate the HttpClient site locally and validate. 
    `maven site:generate`
   * Checkin all changes.
    `svn commit -m 'Changes for 3.0.1 release'`

=== Release Package ===

   * Tag the code in SVN.

    When releasing off a branch
    {{{svn copy -m "HttpClient release 3.0.1" 

    When releasing off the trunk
    {{{svn copy -m "HttpClient release 3.1-alpha1" 
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jakarta/commons/proper/httpclient/trunk https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jakarta/commons/proper/httpclient/tags/HTTPCLIENT_3_1_ALPHA1}}}

   * Make sure you running a 1.2 JVM.  This is necessary to ensure that the generated binaries
are 1.2 compatible.
   * Generate the binary packages.
    `maven httpclient:dist`
   * Verify the contents of the generated packages.
   * Sign and checksum the generated packages (*.zip, *.tar.gz, and *.jar).  Details for this
are covered in the [http://commons.apache.org/releases/release.html Commons release documentation].
 Below is a quick Perl script to accomplish this. {{{
#!/usr/bin/perl -w
# signs and checksums all files given as command line args

foreach my $file (@ARGV) {
    print $file."\n";

    my $md5 = `md5sum $file`;
    `echo "$md5" > $file.md5`;    
    $md5 =~ /(\w+)\s+/;
    $md5 = $1;
    # verify md5
    my $testMd5 = `openssl md5 < $file`;
    if ($testMd5 ne $md5) { die 'md5 does not equal'; }

    `gpg --armor --output $file.asc --detach-sig $file`;
    # verify signature
    `gpg --verify $file.asc $file`
   * Copy the release materials to your personal Apache web directory and invite the other
HttpClient committers to test out the release packages before you continue.

== Publishing the Release ==

   * Copy binary and source distributions into the HttpClient dist directory.{{{
   export DIST_DIR=/www/www.apache.org/dist/jakarta/commons/httpclient
   cp commons-httpclient-3.0.1-src* $DIST_DIR/source/
   cp commons-httpclient-3.0.1.tar* commons-httpclient-3.0.1.zip* $DIST_DIR/binary/
   cp release-notes.txt $DIST_DIR/RELEASE_NOTES.txt}}}
   * Copy the jar and POM to the ibiblio dist directory. {{{
   export IBIBLIO_DIR=/www/people.apache.org/repo/m1-ibiblio-rsync-repository/commons-httpclient
   cp commons-httpclient-3.0.1.jar* $IBIBLIO_DIR/jars/
   cp project.xml $IBIBLIO_DIR/poms/commons-httpclient-3.0.1.pom}}}
   * Be sure that all files belong to the ''jakarta'' group and that they are group writable.

=== Updating the Jakarta website ===

  * Check out the [https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jakarta/site jakarta site] directory from
  * Update ''news.xml'' and ''xdocs/downloads/downloads.xml'' to.
  * Run ''ant'' from the site directory to regenerate the site docs.
  * Checkin the modified docs.
   `svn commit -m "Updates for the HttpClient 3.0.1 release"`
  * From ''people.apache.org'' update the Jakarta site.
   cd /www/jakarta.apache.org/
   svn update}}}

=== Redeploy the HttpClient site ===

  {{{maven -Dmaven.username=mbecke site:deploy}}}

== Accounce the release ==

  * Send an email announcing the release to the following lists:
   * announcements@jakarta.apache.org
   * httpcomponents-dev@jakarta.apache.org
   * httpclient-user@jakarta.apache.org
   * private@jakarta.apache.org
  * The email should look something like the following: {{{

About Commons HttpClient -
Although the java.net package provides basic functionality for
accessing resources via HTTP, it doesn't provide the full flexibility
or functionality needed by many applications. The Commons HttpClient
seeks to fill this void by providing an efficient, up-to-date, and
feature-rich package implementing the client side of the most recent
HTTP standards and recommendations.
