Right. This is actually a *common* mistake. Not everybody believed me
when I sad that it was. I think we've got proof of this once more now.
A couple of days ago I added some very explicit instructions on how you
should make a release to my guide . Basically it says you should
*first* make a tag and only create the release *from the tag*. I hope
that people will take this more seriously now.
It's not that I consider my guide to be a papal edict (I'm not Jim,
after all), but it *is* based on experience and best practices. Having
made releases for many Zope eggs (if you want proof, just look at ),
I think I can safely say that I know my way around the pitfalls now.
That said, I welcome any suggestion that other people have while
creating releases. We need to get better at this stuff!
