How to do a GIMP release
----------------------------
a check-list for doing a GIMP release
( ) Check that you have working ssh access to ftp.gimp.org and that you
are a member of the ftp group.
( ) Check that ftp.gimp.org has enough space to upload the release and to
place it into the FTP area. If not, make place or ask Yosh to do that.
( ) Make sure the checkout is up to date, clean from uncommitted changes.
( ) Check that the version number is correct in configure.in
( ) Run ./autogen.sh --enable-gtk-doc
( ) Do a complete build of the source tree.
( ) Check if README or INSTALL need to be updated.
( ) Does the splash screen need to be changed?
( ) Run 'make distcheck'.
( ) If there are problems with 'make distcheck', fix them and try again.
( ) Commit changes that you had to do to get 'make distcheck' running.
( ) Add the release entry to the ChangeLog.
( ) Run 'make dist' to create the final tarball.
( ) Use md5sum to create a checksum of the tarball (tar.bz2).
( ) Upload the tarball (tar.bz2) and the .md5 file to your home directory
on ftp.gimp.org. Keep a copy of the .md5 file around.
( ) Commit the changes to ChangeLog and generated files that were changed
by running 'make dist'.
( ) Tag the release.
( ) Move the tarball and the .md5 file to its final destination in the
FTP area (/home/ftp/pub/gimp/v2.x).
( ) Update the 0.0_LATEST-IS- file in the directory on the FTP server.
( ) Change permissions of the new files to make them writable by the 'ftp'
group. This will allow other members of this group to correct mistakes
and to update the 0.0_LATEST-IS- file next time.
( ) Add the new version to the GIMP product on bugzilla.gimp.org.
( ) Check out or update the 'gimp-web' module and change
downloads/index.htrw. Commit this change, the web server should
then update itself soon.
( ) Bump the version number in configure.in and commit this change.
( ) Grab a properly chilled beverage and enjoy yourself.
