Design Doc

This bug tracks effort to implement the above design to rework our build and release process.


  • Implement new split build+publish process, written in Go instead of bash scripts.
  • Create a new repo, istio/release, to house the implementation and pipeline for daily/official releases
  • Set up daily builds. Implementation: Set up a periodical that builds the release and pushes to GCS bucket istio-release/daily/version. At the end of the job, trigger a PR in the release pipeline. This will run the full suite of tests, using the published binaries. These merge without approval. In postsubmit, the images will be published to
  • Set up support for official releases. Not yet clear the exact process that would be, because ideally we have three steps: build the binary, test the binary, then push the binary (to staging repo only!!!). Then after manual qualification, we do the full publish to official dockerhub+github. Perhaps the first step of building the binary could be manual/manual triggered prow job
