Jaeger Backend Release Process

  1. Create a PR "Preparing release X.Y.Z" against master branch (example) by updating to include:
    • A new section with the header <X.Y.Z> (YYYY-MM-DD)
    • A curated list of notable changes and links to PRs. Do not simply dump git log, select the changes that affect the users.
    • The section can be split into sub-section if necessary, e.g. UI Changes, Backend Changes, Bug Fixes, etc.
  2. After the PR is merged, create a release on Github:
    • Title "Release X.Y.Z"
    • Tag vX.Y.Z (note the v prefix)
    • Copy the new section into the release notes
  3. The release tag will trigger a build of the docker images
  4. Once the images are available on Docker Hub, announce the release on the mailing list, gitter, and twitter.
