Using ReleaseMe

Setup:

git clone kde:releaseme
cd releaseme
cat README.md

Step 1: tarballing

./tarme.rb --version 5.0 --origin 5.0 kdevplatform

Step 2: tagging

./tagme.rb 5.0.0

Rinse & repeat for kdevelop, kdev-php, kdev-python

Upload the tarballs to the KDE FTP and notify the sysadmins:

Also add the sha256sum of the tarballs to the sysadmin ticket; also tell where sysadmins should upload the tarballs.
