Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1157) Formatable changes log (CHANGES.txt is easy to edit but not so friendly to read by Lucene users)
Date Mon, 11 Feb 2008 06:06:08 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-1157?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12567525#action_12567525

Doron Cohen commented on LUCENE-1157:
-------------------------------------

So there will be:
   http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/lucene/java/site/docs/changes/Changes_2_1_0.html
   http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/lucene/java/site/docs/changes/Changes_2_2_0.html
   http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/lucene/java/site/docs/changes/Changes_2_3_0.html

These will be created once, now, for previous releases, and for future releases as part of
the (to be updated) release steps.

I like this except for one thing: what it means for fixing a release branch.
Today fixing a release branch requires to also update CHANGES.txt.
>From now on it would require to generate Changes.html and check it in.
My concern is that people would forget to update this file, and we will have a nice html view
of changes but it would not be up-to-date. 

Up to today I saw branch updates only as part of last minute fixes of the to-become-a-new-
release. 
But it is not impossible that critical fixes will be merged in the future into an existing
releases.

"Release To Do" can be extended with the required steps for fixing/updating a release branch.
Being a rare practice this might be enough...?
