Versions and releases

Currently we aim to create proof of concept releases weekly, not based on a certain feature level. All proof of concept releases will have version numbers in the 0.0.x range (so PoC-1 = 0.0.1).

Create a PoC release

Install bumpversion (see

Update your master branch to the latest upstream version

git checkout master && git pull --rebase

Call the release script

This will bump the version, create a commit on a new branch poc_release_{version}, push this branch to the upstream repository and create a PR.

Follow the steps from the script to merge the PR and tag the result on the master branch, which will trigger the PyPI release.
