Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache SystemML 0.11.0-incubating (RC5)
Date Tue, 08 Nov 2016 20:16:38 GMT
Hi Deron,

Here's an example from a release I did recently for a TLP to give you some
guidance.  https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/deltaspike/1.7.2/ (and
i'm sure others may find some errors in what I did - no one's perfect)

In this release, for each file there are 3 accompanying files - the .asc,
.sha1. and the .md5.  Your release is missing sha1's, but i'm not sure
that's too important.

The overall release contents are made up of:

- Source ZIP file
- POM file for the root of the project
- The convenience binary zip
- The convenience binary .tar.gz

I actually have a note to not copy the tests JAR in the future.  I think
the problem area is that its not clear looking at the file names what is
what in your release.  If your release only included a single source zip,
two convenience binaries (tar.gz and zip) as well as the relevant asc and
md5 files, they were all named properly, that would be perfect.
