Subject Apache MiNiFi C++ 0.3.0 Release Helper Guide
Date Mon, 27 Nov 2017 17:00:18 GMT
Hello Apache NiFi community,

Please find the associated guidance to help those interested in
validating/verifying the release so they can vote.

# Download latest KEYS file:

# Import keys file:
gpg --import KEYS

# Pull down nifi-minifi-cpp-0.3.0 source release artifacts for review:


# Verify the signature
gpg --verify nifi-minifi-cpp-0.3.0-source.tar.gz.asc

# Verify the hashes (md5, sha1, sha256) match the source and what was
provided in the vote email thread
md5sum nifi-minifi-cpp-0.3.0-source.tar.gz
sha1sum nifi-minifi-cpp-0.3.0-source.tar.gz
sha256sum nifi-minifi-cpp-0.3.0-source.tar.gz

# Untar nifi-minifi-cpp-0.3.0-source.tar.gz
tar xf nifi-minifi-cpp-0.3.0-source.tar.gz

# Verify the build works

Be mindful of the pre-requisites required for the C++ version of MiNiFi,
enumerated in the README [1] and the switching to the CMake build system
These can vary from system to system and distribution, an example of the
package listing for a recent Ubuntu release is:
  cmake gcc g++ libcurl4-openssl-dev uuid-dev uuid libboost-all-dev
libssl-dev doxygen libpython3-dev libbz2-dev liblzma-dev

Once the required environment is established, a build with testing and
linting can be performed via:

  cd nifi-minifi-cpp-0.3.0-source
  mkdir build
  cd build
  make package
  make test
  make linter

# Verify the contents contain a good README, NOTICE, and LICENSE.

# Verify the git commit ID is correct

# Verify the RC was branched off the correct git commit ID

# Look at the resulting convenience assembly
(nifi-minifi-cpp-0.3.0-bin.tar.gz) found in your build directory

# Make sure the README, NOTICE, and LICENSE are present and correct

# Run the resulting convenience binary and make sure it works as expected

Be mindful of caveats for this initial release, listed in the README. Since
the convenience binaries include
the scripting extension [2], Python support is needed per our README [1]

For some additional assistance, a package with configuration files for both
a MiNiFI instance and a NiFi instance available at
The provided sample configuration bundle assumes that NiFi is configured to
listen on port 8081 and has 10001 configured for Site to Site's

# Send a response to the vote thread indicating a +1, 0, -1 based on your

Thank you for your time and effort to validate the release!
