Create a New Software Release
This article has been superseded by this.
Create New Release Branches
For each of the packages (I2CE, ihris-common, ihris-manage, etc.) you need to do the following steps.
- Tag the release with the version number and release (4.0.0-release)
bzr tag <version>-release
- Push the release to launchpad
bzr push lp:~intrahealth+informatics/<package>/<version>-release
Create/Edit the Series on Launchpad
If this is a new series (like 4.x) then on the main package page under Series click "Register a series" and fill out the information for the new series.
If the series already exists then edit the series and set the series branch to be the new released branch. Also change the status to Current Stable Release.
You'll do this for every package that is being released.
Create the Tar Files
Now we need to get a fresh checkout to make sure no extra files are hanging around and create the tar files from those.
- Create a directory for this package release then change into it.
mkdir <version> cd <version>
- Checkout all the branches we just created by the series name.
bzr co lp:i2ce/<series> I2CE bzr co lp:textlayout/<series> textlayout bzr co lp:ihris-common/<series> ihris-common bzr co lp:ihris-manage/<series> ihris-manage
- Create all the necessary tar files excluding any of the .bzr files.
tar cjf I2CE-<version>.tar.bz2 --exclude=.bzr* I2CE tar cjf I2CE-full-<version>.tar.bz2 --exclude=.bzr* I2CE textlayout tar cjf ihris-common-<version>.tar.bz2 --exclude=.bzr* ihris-common tar cjf ihris-common-full-<version>.tar.bz2 --exclude=.bzr* I2CE textlayout ihris-common tar cjf ihris-manage-<version>.tar.bz2 --exclude=.bzr* ihris-manage tar cjf ihris-manage-full-<version>.tar.bz2 --exclude=.bzr* I2CE textlayout ihris-common ihris-manage
- When release Qualify and Plan as well, also create the iHRIS Suite tar file.
tar cjf ihris-suite-<version>.tar.bz2 --exclude=.bzr* I2CE textlayout ihris-common ihris-qualify ihris-manage ihris-plan
Create a Release
Click on the series page and under Milestones and Releases click "Create milestone" if one hasn't already been created for this release. Fill out the information and name the milestone the release version number (4.0.0). Click "Release now" next to the milestone you just created. Fill out the information and click "Create Release." Now click on the release you just created.
Here you can add the tar files we just created. Click "Add download file" and browse to the relevant tar files you created earlier. There should be two for each package. Or three for I2CE if you create the iHRIS Suite tar file. For the description give the version and list of packages included in the tar file. (I2CE 4.0.0 release with textlayout for I2CE-full-4_0_0.tar.bz2.) Make sure the File Content Type is Code Release Tarball.
