- PPMC vote and tally.
- During incubation, IPMC vote, for example:
Conclude and tally the vote on general@ by replying with a final [RESULT][VOTE] <subject>, which can be done after minimal 72h. Check the general@ list for examples on the format and content of such [RESULT][VOTE] emails, for example:
- The source distribution at https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/incubator/netbeans/
needs to be moved (can use svn mv for that) to something like:
- Also, the KEYS file needed to verify netbeans distributions needs to be uploaded in the root (netbeans) dist folder there as well:
- Finally, the NetBeans website (netbeans.apache.org) needs to provide a download link for the distribution, including (explicitly) links to:
i.e., update the website with the release info, as that is required to make it a proper and community-visible release.
Staging Release Candidate
Into a local release directory, $RELEASE, checkout staging area:
$ cd $RELEASE
$ mkdir -p repos/dist/dev/incubator/netbeans
$ cd repos/dist/dev/incubator/netbeans
$ svn checkout https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/incubator/netbeans
Add the candidate, and svn add&svn commit.
Releasing a Release Candidate
To actually release a candidate, move it to the release area. In addition to the staging area, the release area needs to be checked out:
$ cd $RELEASE
$ mkdir -p repos/dist/release/incubator/netbeans
$ cd repos/dist/release/incubator/netbeans
Then move the candidate to the release area:
$ svn move $RELEASE/repos/dist/dev/incubator/netbeans/<candidate> .
And then commit the move:
$ svn commit -m "<commitmessage>" dev/incubator/netbeans/ release/incubator/netbeans/
