To build a binary release of OpenMeetings you need:
Check that all files:
LICENSE, NOTICE, DISCLAIMER, CHANGELOG, README
are up to date and refer to the right version.
Create a TAG of the SVN tree that you would like to release
svn copy -r1453158 https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/openmeetings/trunk/singlewebapp \ https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/openmeetings/tags/2.1RC1 \ -m "Release candidate 1"
Get the source from your TAG:
svn checkout https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/openmeetings/tags/$BRANCHORTAG/
$BRANCHORTAG should be replaced with your new TAG
Edit the file build.properties change
Run the command:
Test building the source on windows and OSx or Linux
Test running the binary's
Create MD5 checksums
#On OSX you might use this command to make a MD5 checksum and store it to a file md5 -r apache-openmeetings-XXX-src.zip >apache-openmeetings-XXX-src.zip.md5
#To create MD5 hashes On Ubuntu: for f in `ls -1 *.tar.gz *.zip`; do md5sum $f > $f.md5; done #To check MD5 hashes On Ubuntu: for f in `ls -1 *.tar.gz *.zip`; do md5sum -c $f.md5; done
Create signatures with the your KEY for every file, the KEY must be available at:
#To create signatures On Ubuntu: for f in `ls -1 *.tar.gz *.zip`; do gpg --armor --output $f.asc --detach-sig $f; done #To check signatures On Ubuntu: for f in `ls -1 *.tar.gz *.zip`; do gpg --verify $f.asc; done
Commit artifacts you have created with KEYS file to the https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/openmeetings/ Proposed file structure for "Release Candidate 1" of 2.1 will be:
2.1 2.1/rc1 2.1/rc1/src 2.1/rc1/src/apache-openmeetings-2.1.0-src.zip 2.1/rc1/src/apache-openmeetings-2.1.0-src.tar.gz 2.1/rc1/src/apache-openmeetings-2.1.0-src.zip.md5 2.1/rc1/src/apache-openmeetings-2.1.0-src.zip.asc 2.1/rc1/src/apache-openmeetings-2.1.0-src.tar.gz.md5 2.1/rc1/src/apache-openmeetings-2.1.0-src.tar.gz.asc 2.1/rc1/bin 2.1/rc1/bin/apache-openmeetings-2.1.0.zip 2.1/rc1/bin/apache-openmeetings-2.1.0.tar.gz 2.1/rc1/bin/apache-openmeetings-2.1.0.zip.md5 2.1/rc1/bin/apache-openmeetings-2.1.0.zip.asc 2.1/rc1/bin/apache-openmeetings-2.1.0.tar.gz.md5 2.1/rc1/bin/apache-openmeetings-2.1.0.tar.gz.asc 2.1/rc1/CHANGELOG 2.1/rc1/KEYS
Send a "VOTE" to the developer mailing list including links to release artefacts.
A VOTE always contains two parts:
Send an email to the developer mailing list with the subject line:
[VOTE] Apache OpenMeetings x.xx release
An example for such an email: example Vote email example Vote email (Incubator)
Forward (Not CC) this Vote email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
After the vote is over, send a "RESULT" email to the list with the subject line:
[RESULT][VOTE] Apache OpenMeetings x.xx release
An example for such an email: example Result email
Forward (Not CC) this RESULT VOTE email to: email@example.com
Votes on whether a package is ready to be released use majority approval -- i.e., at least three PMC members must vote affirmatively for release, and there must be more positive than negative votes. Releases may not be vetoed. Before voting +1 PMC members are required to download the signed source code package, compile it as provided, and test the resulting executable on their own platform, along with also verifying that the package meets the requirements of the ASF policy on releases.
If VOTEs positive: Upload the release
svn mv https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/openmeetings/2.1/rc3 \ https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/openmeetings/2.1 \ -m "RC3 is released as 2.1"
Wait 24 hours (until all Apache mirrors have synced the packages) and send an announcement to the mailing list + blog and any other channel.
Email announcements should have the subject line:
[ANNOUNCE] Apache OpenMeetings x.xx released
Add a section to downloads website.
Make sure that the binary packages are linked using the mirror URL as base path ( not http://www.apache.org/dist):
Mirror URL: http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi/openmeetings/
Release candidates should be deleted from https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/openmeetings/
Old releases should be deleted from https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/openmeetings/
