Getting Code to Production
This is the process for getting new code into Production
- Do features and bug fixes in branches. Create a pull request to have new
code merged into the
- Create a new release tag with
- Create an RPM from the tag
- Create a new staging server based on the new RPM
- Have QA test to make sure everything is OK

Why the RPM?
This is a quick introduction to how the Service Ops. team deploys Mozilla IdP. For security and operational reasons we turn the application into an RPM and deploy from our private RPM repository.
This allows us to maintain a package that can be audited as well as very specific versioning using RPMs.
The scripts and processes for building the RPM exists in the mozilla-services/svcops-oompaloompas repository.
