Calligra/Release Howto

This page contains notes on what needs to be done when releasing a new version of Calligra.

This is work in progress. You can contribute to this page or request updates.

Tarball creation



git checkout -b calligra/${VERSION}
git push origin calligra/${VERSION}


Prepare yourself for a lot of suffering:

  • warn the i18n coordinator in advance
  • copy translation to stable-kde4 (use the calligra-release.rb scripts in calligra's release scripts )
  • update scripty for stable translations (edit scripts/get_paths change the get_path function, and check that list_modules contains calligra)
  • check that stable-kde4/doocumentation has an external on the calligra's branch documentation
  • announce it to translators (CCMAIL:[email protected])

Website update


  • announcements/changelog-#{version}.php
  • announcements/announce-#{version}.php
  • releases/#{version}-release.php
  • release notes translation:
* send the release notes a few days before release to kde-i18n-doc at
* complete the page "announcements/announce-#{version}.php" with link to the translation that are usually hosted on KDE i18n local team websites
