  • update reference materials for testing
  • push changes to bitbucket
  • test all changes since the last release
    • run the fuego test suite
  • pull patches from next to master
  • tag the release
  • push master to bitbucket
  • announce on the fuego mailing list

Detailed steps [edit section]

select a volcano or fire-related name [edit section]

If this is a major release, it should get a name for the release.

See Volcano Names or Fire Names for a tentative list and resources for finding a name.

update the CHANGELOG [edit section]

  • get a list of changes for each repository:
    • git log --oneline v1.4.0..
    • or use gitk to see changes graphically
    • or use 'git shortlog v1.4.0..' and examine commits by author
  • edit fuego/CHANGELOG with human-readable features

update the CREDITS file [edit section]

  • in fuego and fuego-core, do author-stats
    • or 'git shortlog -s -e -n v1.x.x..'
  • edit fuego/CREDITS and add any new significant contributors

change the VERSION number [edit section]

  • edit fuego/VERSION
  • edit fuego/docs/rst_src/ 'version' and 'release' variables
  • edit fuego-core/engine/scripts/ftc VERSION variable
  • edit fuego-core/engine/scripts/ FUEGO_VERSION and FUEGO_CORE_VERSION variables

update reference materials for testing [edit section]

  • make sure reference materials (board, toolchains, etc) are up-to-date
  • check ~/work/fuego-reference and update with material from ~/f/fuego/fuego-ro
    • cd ~/work/fuego-reference
    • ./

push changes to bitbucket [edit section]

  • push branch changes
    • if testing 'next', make sure each repository is on the correct branch:
      • (in fuego:) git branch -v
      • (in fuego-core:) git branch -v
    • (in fuego-core:) git push
    • (in fuego:) git push

test changes since last release [edit section]

  • make a release directory:
    • mkdir ~/work/fuego/release-<date>
    • ln ~/work/fuego/release-<date> ~/fr
    • cd ~/fr

  • build docker image, install boards and toolchains, and run tests
    • curdate=MMdd
    • $ [next|master] fuego-<curdate>
    • (in another terminal) $ fuego-<curdate>-container

  • examine error reports for tests
    • ftc list-runs --where "start_time>yesterday,status!=PASS"
    • ftc gen-report --where "start_time>yesterday,status!=PASS"

pull patches from next to master [edit section]

  • in ~/work/fuego/release-<date>/fuego:
    • git stash
    • git checkout master
    • git merge next
  • get fuego-core patches onto master
    • cd ~/work/fuego/release-<date>
    • git clone
    • cd fuego-core
    • git merge origin/next
    • git push
  • test again
    • install, create container, start container, run tests
      • (see steps above, but use 'master-YYYY-MM-dd' for directory, and fuego-MMdd for image name)

tag the release [edit section]

NOTE: IMPORTANT tag the release NAME first, then the number, so that 'git describe' will show releases with the number, not the name.

Where M= Major, m = minor, r = revision,

  • (in fuego:) git tag -a Name -m "Name the vM.m.r release: Name"
  • (in fuego:) git tag -a vM.m.r -m "Fuego vM.m.r"
  • (in fuego-core:) git tag -a Name -m "Name the vM.m.r release: Name"
  • (in fuego-core:) git tag -a vM.m.r -m "Fuego vM.m.r"

push fuego and fuego-core master to bitbucket [edit section]

  • (in fuego:) git push
  • (in fuego:) git push --tags
  • (in fuego-core:) git push
  • (in fuego-core:) git push --tags

update the release table [edit section]

announce on the fuego mailing list [edit section]

  • create a new e-mail message, to:
    • copy CHANGELOG
    • use subject: ANNOUNCE: Fuego Release vX.Y.Z (Name)
    • add commentary
  • send
