People make mistakes. Can we reduce the number/severity of those mistakes by creating a Python script to automate the release process as much as possible? Things like:
- check that the version number in setup.py doesn't match an existing release in cheeseshop - check whether you have modified but not committed (or unversioned) files in the source tree - check that you've created a tag in subversion for this release (or, alternatively, offer to create the tag for you) - build an egg, install it locally in a temporary directory, then run the test suite to check for any missing files or whatever (a somewhat related idea would be to set up a buildbot to check for new zope-related egg releases and run their test suite in a sandbox, to notice breakages and email the guilty parties) - run the correct setup.py command to build/register/upload the egg to cheeseshop and/or www.zope.org I'd be happy to work on such a script during the sprint, if someone could help me figure out what exactly it should to do.
