I'd really like to get to closure on the current approved
release process. Philipp, would you mind separating the release
process into a separate file? Or do you mind if I do it?
Cool. I think you can delete 5b. You already update the date, as
you should, on the trunk or branch. You want the actual release
date to be part of the change log, so it has to be entered before
making the tag.
I think we need to split "d" into:
d) "Create a source release"
e) Test the source release. At a minimum, rerun the package tests
using the source release.
(I really need to add a buildout option to help with this.)
So how would I do this? This feels a bit complicated:
1. Create a source distribution with::
$ python setup.py sdist
2. Extract the tarball::
$ tar xzf dist/foo.package-X.Y.tgz
3. Edit buildout.cfg to make the result of the tarball a develop
egg *instead* of
the stuff in 'src'::
develop = foo.package-X.Y
4. Rerun the buildout::
5. Run the tests::
Currently, you could:
- Create the source distro. (Note that I always use sparkling
clean Pythons, so the command you give
doesn't work for me as setuptools isn't importable. I always
use: bin/buildout setup . sdist
- Add your dist directory to the list of find links
- Specify the new version in your requirements
- remove the develop entry
- run the buildout
- run the tests
As I said, buildout could automate this in the future.
