Subject [Solr Wiki] Update of "HowToRelease" by Mark Miller
Date Mon, 14 Jun 2010 23:11:14 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Solr Wiki" for change notification.

The "HowToRelease" page has been changed by Mark Miller.


   1. Update the version numbers in common-build.xml on the branch:
    * specversion should be set to X.Y.M.${dateversion}, where X.Y.M is the release being
    * version should be set to X.Y.N-dev, where N is one greater than the release being made.
-   * maven_version should be the same as version for release but set to X.Y-SNAPSHOT for
+   * maven_version should be set to X.Y.N-SNAPSHOT, where N is one greater than the release
being made.
   1. commit the changes to both trunk and branch
   1. On the branch, compile the code and run unit tests.
    . {{{ant -Dversion=X.Y.M -Dspecversion=X.Y.M -Dmaven_version=X.Y.M clean test}}}
   1. Regenerate the "site" docs per [[Website_Update_HOWTO]] so the documentation included
with this release will reflect the correct version number (at the moment, this is specific
to the tutorial)
   1. Commit the build.xml and documentation changes from the previous few steps.
   1. Produce one or more release candidates using the steps outlined here, up to the point
of actually tagging the release and distributing it.  Ask on solr-dev (cc
) for reviewers of the release candidates.  When a consensus emerges, build the final release
candidate and call a vote.  3 +1 Lucene PMC votes are technically needed for a release, although
Solr considers all votes equally. (see [[|voting]]).
-   * {{{ant -Dversion=X.Y.M -Dspecversion=X.Y.M -Dmaven_version=X.Y.M prepare-release}}}
+   * {{{ant -Dversion=X.Y.M -Dspecversion=X.Y.M -Dmaven_version=X.Y.M prepare-release}}}
- note that if your OS username is not the same as your Apache username, you may need to add
a --username param to the svn call in build.xml target build-site eg <arg value="--username
    * Check that release tgz/zip files looks ok - e.g. uncompress them, run example, work
through the steps of the tutorial, ensure that the javadocs are readable, etc...
    * Upload dist/solr.tar to your public staging space on people.a.o.and send an email to
solr-dev@ calling the vote.
