Support releasing stable Github releases using the release tool #15848

commented May 27, 2019

This PR refactors the release tool a little bit in order to support performing stable releases. For the moment it only performs the "Github" part of the stable release, it dosen't touch SVN yet.

Testing instructions

  • You can test this without affecting the real Gutenberg repositories.
  • Have a fork of the repository
  • Create an SVN repository in any random host (and copy the content of the gutenberg svn repository into it, copy just trunk and create an empty tags folder).
  • checkout this branch, change the gitRepoURL variable to your Github username and change the svnRepoURL to use your custom SVN repo.
  • Now you can run ./bin/commander.js rc or ./bin/commander.js stable as much as you want. The only thing that is not supported is to perform two consecutive RC releases.

For example:

./bin/commander.js stable  // will release Gutenberg 5.8.0
./bin/commander.js stable  // will release Gutenberg 5.8.1
./bin/commander.js stable  // will release Gutenberg 5.8.2
./bin/commander.js rc  // will release Gutenberg 5.9.0-rc.1
./bin/commander.js stable  // will release Gutenberg 5.9.0
./bin/commander.js rc  // will release Gutenberg 6.0.0-rc.1

I updated this, it now supports the full process including the SVN release. I've been testing on a custom SVN repo. (See testing instructions)

I'd like to merge this today to be able to use it for tomorrow's release.
