So, finally document that here. == Step 1: Changelog, NEWS, version number == First, update the NEWS file. It should contain a high-level summary of the changes since the last release. To obtain the full log of all changes since the last release, run the following command or have a look in ''gitk'': <code bash> git log vx.y.(z-1).. </code> Finally, update the version number in the top-level CMakeLists.txt and Mainpage.dox and commit/push all your changes. == Step 2: Tagging/Branching == Tagging a major (pre-)release, i.e. a release from master is done with the following commands: <code bash> git checkout master git tag vx.y.z git push git push --tags </code> For a stable release, that is a release from a stable branch, the command looks like this: <code bash> git checkout x.y git tag vx.y.z git push git push --tags </code> === Creating a new stable branch === A new stable branch is created by the following command: <code bash> git checkout -b x.y # do modifications as described above git push origin x.y </code> Afterwards perform the following steps: * increment the version number in master == Step 3: Tarball Creation == Run the following command to create the tarball: <code bash> git archive --format=tar --prefix=akonadi-x.y.z/ vx.y.z | bzip2 -9 > akonadi-x.y.z.tar.bz2 </code> == Step 4: Upload == Upload the tarball somewhere and notify Tom or Volker to move it to http://download.akonadi-project.org/ (unless you are one of those two, then upload directly). == Step 5: Bugzilla == Log into http://bugs.kde.org/, chose ''Edit Products -> Akonadi -> Add version'' and add the version you just released. == Step 6: Announcements == Update channel topic on #akonadi. TODO == Step 7: Dirk == Finally, apologize to Dirk for being late again with the release ;-) [[Category:Akonadi]] [[Category:PIM]] Return to PIM/Akonadi/Release Howto.
