This fixes #2014 and also makes a few additional changes:

  • We now tag the release separately from pushing to production, which reduces the possibility of the tag not being pushed and also explicitly makes clear exactly what the tagging process is doing (i.e., making the tag show up on the release page).

  • We no longer wait for CircleCI before changing Instead, we only wait for review approval from stakeholders, and wait for CircleCI only after the final commit to change has been made. This results in less waiting around for CircleCI to finish.

So even though the release instructions now include one additional step, the process should actually go faster and be less error prone, I think. We'll probably want to run through a small release after this update just to "manually test" these changes, though.
