Making a release (for release managers)
=======================================
1. Pre-release check list
- Make sure tests pass on all the supported Python versions (sudo tox)
- Make sure CHANGES file is up to date
- Make sure __version__ string in libcloud/__init__.py is up to date
2. Creating release artifacts
We have a script that runs the required setup.py commands and then hashes
and signs the files. To run it:
cd dist
./release.sh -u yourusername@apache.org
This should result in a set of apache-libcloud-${VERSION}.{tar.bz2,zip}{,asc,md5,sha1}
files that are suitable to be uploaded for a release.
3. Uploading release artifacts
- Add release artifacts to the SVN repository at
https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/libcloud/
It may take up to a day for the artifacts to be available on all the
Apache mirrors, but they should be instantly available at
http://www.apache.org/dist/libcloud/.
- If there is more than one older release in the repository, delete the
oldest one. Old releases are automatically archived and available at
https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/libcloud/.
4. Tagging a release
svn copy https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/libcloud/trunk/ \
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/libcloud/tags/<version number> \
-r <release revision number> \
-m "Release <version number>"
5. Publishing package to PyPi
TODO
6. Generate API docs and add them to the SVN repository
python setup.py apidocs
cp -r apidocs ../site/content/apidocs/<version>
Note: For generating API docs you need the following libraries installed:
- pydoctor - http://codespeak.net/~mwh/pydoctor/
- epydoc
7. Update latest API doc version in ../site/content/apidocs/index.html and
../site/content./apidocs/.htaccess
8. Updating a website and doap_libcloud
- Update "News" page
- Update "Downloads" page
- Update "Get it" section in the sidebar
- Update doap_libcloud.rdf and add info about the new version
9. Sending announcements
- Send a release announcement to {dev,users}@libcloud.apache.org. If it's a
major release also send it to announce@apache.org.
- Send a release announcement to Twitter & Google+
Miscellaneous:
- If needed, use Apache URL shortening service - http://s.apache.org/
