Building a release
So you are a comitter and you want to release a new version of Seccubus.
Calculate a new version number
As of April 2016 the “odd” version numbers are development releases the “even” version are releases.
So if 2.20 is the current release then 2.21 is the release currently under development. It will become 2.22 as soon as you will release it.
In SeccubusV2.pm there is a line like this:
$VERSION = '2.21';
Update it to reflect the new version number.
Make sure README.md and ChangeLog.md are up to date
Make sure that README.md reflects all changes since the last released version, Make sure that you copy this to the head of ChangeLog.md as well. It has all the changes since version 2.0.alpha1
Make sure that all unit tests pass
This ensures that the packes build on all supported platforms too.
Make sure hub.docker.com is building the container
Tag the repo
$ git tag -a 2.22 -m "This will be release 2.22" $ git push --follow-tags Counting objects: 1, done. Writing objects: 100% (1/1), 179 bytes | 0 bytes/s, done. Total 1 (delta 0), reused 0 (delta 0) To firstname.lastname@example.org:schubergphilis/Seccubus * [new tag] 2.22 -> 2.22
- Use qualified tags!
- Don’t prepend a v to the version or OpenSUSE build services will fail!
Make sure that all unit tests pass (AGAIN!)
Create a pull request from master to releases
This will make sure the release also gets uploaded to the releases repository.
Create a release on GitHub
See GitHub release page.
Use the tag you have just created. If you committed after you created the tag you need to delete the tag first.
Download the binary packages
Get the following from CircleCI:
- RPMS: master / fedora_package_building -> fedora_ok -> artifacts
- .deb file: master / debian_package_building -> debian_ok -> artifacts
Attach them to the build
See the release you just created at the GitHub release page.
