  Instructions for mod_perl 2.0 Release Manager
  1. 'make dist' - to make sure nothing is missing from the manifest,
     etc. Now test this generated package (not cvs) with as many
     configurations as possible on as many platforms as possible.
    a) nuke any preinstalled mod_perl libs and run 'make test'
    b) test that you can 'make install' and then run 'make test' again
  2. once confident that the package is good, upload a release candidate
     to and post 24 hour-ish candidate alert
     to the modperl/dev list (may be longer to give most people a chance
     to catch up). no need to tag this package
  2a. if problems are detected during stage 2, repeat stages 1 and 2.
  3. when the package has been reported to be good, prepare a new
     package to be released
    a. edit ./Changes:
       - remove '-dev' 
       - add release date
    b. make sure tag looks right (might need to rerun Makefile.PL)
       % make -n cvs_tag
    c. commit Changes
       % cvs ci Changes
    d. tag
       % make cvs_tag
    e. create the final package
       % make dist
    f. test the final package again at least once
  4. Release the package and update links (e.g. mod_perl-1.99_09.tar.gz)
    a. upload to
    b. ssh to, unpack the package, update symlinks to the
       tar ball and unpacked distro:

      % tar -xzvf mod_perl-1.99_09.tar.gz
      % ln -s /www/ \
    c. remove releases older by 2 subversions (keep the last one)
    d. update the version and release date in src/download.html in
       modperl-docs repository.
  5. Upload the package to CPAN
