doc, x/website: move "Release History" content to x/website #36075
I plan to move the Release History page (along with two other pages in https://golang.org/doc/devel/ with pre-Go 1 history) from the main Go repository to the x/website repository. This is a subset of #29206, and this change will help improve the Go release process. The background section elaborates on the benefits.
This is the tracking issue. Relevant steps:
When making minor Go releases, the first time-intensive automated step in the release process is the
This is more expensive, time intensive, and error prone than it could be made today. There are two reasons why it was originally done this way:
Point 2 is no longer true for Go 1.13 and newer. Go 1.12 was the last release that bundled the godoc command as part of the binary distribution.
After this change, the process of creating, reviewing, and submitting 5 CLs to the main repository before the release can be cut will be replaced with a single step that can be done asynchronously (e.g., while a long-running automated command is running):
During the time that Go 1.12 is still supported (until Go 1.14 is released), we will also need to update its release branch because it has an old godoc bundled that displays the website.
The Release History, Pre-Go 1 Release History, and Weekly Snapshot History pages are copied from Go master as of 2019/12/10 (commit golang/go@931fe39, CL 210717).
