  1.  PPMC vote and tally.

  2. During incubation, IPMC vote, for example: 

    https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/ae06af5a10d99a14e35a0fee8a8e35e91505b85293549f8152a075d4@%3Cgeneral.incubator.apache.org%3E

    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:

    https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/30c40866c0ad97d747c270dc7b7ddc78f60157695763bf355e1697a4@%3Cgeneral.incubator.apache.org%3E


  3. 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:

    https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/incubator/netbeans/incubating-netbeans-html4j/

  4. Also, the KEYS file needed to verify netbeans distributions needs to be uploaded in the root (netbeans) dist folder there as well:

    http://www.apache.org/dev/release-distribution.html#sigs-and-sums

  5. Finally, the NetBeans website (netbeans.apache.org) needs to provide a download link for the distribution, including (explicitly) links to:

    http://www.apache.org/dev/release-distribution.html#download-links

    Example: http://impala.incubator.apache.org/downloads.html

    i
    .e., u
    pdate 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

$ svn checkout https://dist.apache.org/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:

$cd $RELEASE/repos/dist

$ svn commit -m "<commitmessage>" dev/incubator/netbeans/ release/incubator/netbeans/
