Steps used to release a new version. You know, in case I fall off a cliff while geocaching:

  1. Setup:
    1. change version numbers in the files
      • dist/version 0.6
    2. run dist/testcode to check for syntax issues
    3. ensure makedocs and geodb/html/Makefile contains proper list of module names
      • perl makedocs will update the geoqo docs and print any potentially missing modules
      • New plugins may need to be added to the lists
    4. Run ./makedocs
    5. Run "make", "make coversclean" and "make covers" in geoqo/html/
      • checkout requires geoqo source to be in ../geoqo
    6. Run "make test" and check for errors
    7. Update the NEWS file
  2. Release:
    1. svn copy
    2. svn export geoqo-0.4
    3. tar czf geoqo-0.4.tar.gz geoqo-0.4
    4. zip -r geoqo-0.4
    5. ncftpput incoming geoqo-0.4.tar.gz
    6. add release files using admin interface
  3. Advertise:
    1. send note to geoqo-users AT AT
    2. sourceforge news system
      • web site auto updated
    4. topic on #geoqo
